Doctoral Research Workshop

The Doctoral Research Workshop provides a forum for doctoral students to share and discuss research proposals and ongoing work with peers and renowned researchers in the field and aims at fostering collaboration and international networking.


Submission process, selection and organization of groups:

 

  1. Candidates must fill in information as requested including an expanded abstract (1000-1500 words), which may be submitted in Portuguese, English, Spanish or French. The text in the summary field must contain:

Abstract title
Introduction
General objective
Specific research questions
Literature review
Method
Participants
Instruments
Procedures
Data analysis
Results (if obtained) at time of submission
Discussion

 

Abstracts selected by the Scientific Comittee will be separated by areas of interest and designated to specific discussion groups. Discussion groups will be designated by taking into account similar interests and, as possible,  the language(s) of the candidates. The designation of discussion groups therefore depends on a sufficient number of submissions  and on language compatibilities.

  1. Researchers of each area that receives submissions will be invited to coordinate the groups (minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 projects). Each group will have one or two coordinators, who will have access to the submitted material prior to the encounter.
  2. Members of the group must prepare an oral presentation with slides (maximum 15 minutes). On July 15th, 2013 each Doctoral Research Workshop Group will have a total of four hours to discuss the projects. Each doctoral candidate shall present his/her project, followed by theoretical and methodological discussions.
  3. Simultaneous translation services will not be provided.
