The International Multidisciplinary Congress - Web of Knowledge: A look into the Past, embracing the Future will be held by IHC-CEHFCi, HERCULES and CIDEHUS, Universidade de Évora, the special stakeholder, between 17-19 May 2018 in Évora, Portugal. The Congress will also have the scientific support of CESEM, CHAIA, ICAAM, and ICT.
The Congress aims to bring together researchers and scientists from different backgrounds intersecting with the Social Sciences revealing the visible and invisible networks. By fostering the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the study of the past, the Congress expects to lay the framework for the present day science on which to map the future Web of Knowledge.
This Congress intends to meditate on Science, and to understand how it is being constructed nowadays. Our focus is to approach questions such as: How do we do/ communicate Science, immediate Science, Open Access, Intellectual Property, Bioethics, Cultural Heritage, among others.
The Organizing Committee is preparing a stimulating programme which will bring experts from different fields covering a wide range of topics from Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities to Science, Technology and Medicine and which will offer a variety of social activities.
The Congress is also open to groups or individuals you want to organize thematic symposia under the objectives of the International Multidisciplinary Congress - Web of Knowledge.
Please note that these general themes should be considered as guidelines, and therefore opened to change upon participants’ suggestions.
Web of Knowledge invites Panel proposals under the objectives of the Congress.
Each proposal should include the title of the panel, the names, affiliations, and brief biographies of the moderator and the panellists (no more than 200 words each), and a brief description of the content and format of the discussion (500 words).
Panel proposals should be submitted in English by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A 500 words abstract (indicating the chosen theme) and a brief CV (no more than 200 words) should be submitted through the link. Paper proposals should be submitted in English.
Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the congress.
A poster is usually A1 paper size in portrait mode, to which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is important about the work. You do not submit such a large-format image; only an abstract describing in text what the poster would present (250 words). Poster proposals should be submitted in English through the link.
Presenters will be required to bring a printed version of their poster to display at the congress.
