Each panel will consist of a minimum of 4 communications and a maximum of 6 (including that of the panel coordinator) on a common theme. In total, the panel will have a maximum duration of two hours: this is, in a panel of six people, for example, fifteen minutes would be available for each speaker, and 30 minutes for general debate.
The person who coordinates the panel (only one person will be the coordinator for each panel), will be responsible for entering the panel details on the registration form, namely: a title, a summary of a minimum 175 words and a maximum of 250 words, 3 to 5 keywords, and the names of all panelists (please do NOT include all co-authors for each individual communication in the authors section, only the main author presenting, and registering, each communication). References to authorship in the abstract field will not be accepted. The proposal and the possibility of resubmission will be eliminated if this occurs. Likewise, self-citing or citing projects on which you are working and are identifiable will also make the proposal unfit for evaluation.
It will also be necessary to select from a list of theme options (drop-down menu in the registration form), the one that is most akin to the panel presented.
PANELS WHO WISH TO DO SO MAY HAVE A DISCUSSANT (PROFESSIONAL EXPERT IN THE SUBJECT OF THE PANEL, WHO WILL COMMENT ON THE PRESENTATIONS OF THE PANELISTS).
THE COORDINATOR OF THE PANEL WILL BE THE ONE WHO WILL CONTACT IN WRITING WITH THE TECHNICAL SECRETARIAT OF THE 10TH CONFERENCE TO PROVIDE THE NAME OF THE DISCUSSANT.
THE DISCUSSANT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PRESENT A COMMUNICATION IN THE PANEL IN WHICH HE/SHE ACTS AS DISCUSSANT, AND WILL HAVE TO REGISTER IN THE CONFERENCE AS DELEGATE. HE/SHE WILL BE ABLE TO PRESENT A COMMUNICATION IN ANY OTHER PANELS.
Once the panel has been registered, each individual panelist (including the coordinator, if they are also presenting a communication) must register the communications that comprise the panel through the communications registration form, indicating that it is a communication integrated in a panel (read below the guidelines for submitting communications). Panelists must indicate, in addition to their personal details, the theme of the panel, and the name of the panel the communication is part of (selecting from a drop-down menu). Please note that it could take several hours for the name of the panel to appear visible in the drop-down menu after it is registered by the coordinator.
To avoid problems, it is very important that all panelists know the exact title and the theme of the panel, as registered by the coordinator, since each panelist will have to include these details when registering their own communication.
In the event that panels composed of four or five communications are presented, the Organization could request the coordinator to include open communications of the same theme to the panel until completing the limit of six speakers. The inclusion of said communications will only be effective when and if the coordinator of the panel agrees on it. This will always be by a request of the Organization and never by the authors of any free communications.
