The symposium will be held online, on November 21st, 22nd and 23rd, from 10 am to 1 pm (Rio de Janeiro local time). Brazilian and foreign researchers will present their most recent research and advances. We will have talks from invited speakers and also selected from submitted abstracts. If you work in the field and have interesting results to share with the scientific community, please submit your abstract here

Daily sessions will feature presentations, audience Q&A, and a panel discussion involving the presenters. The full schedule details will be announced in the near future.
Certificates wll be available for participants attending > 75% of the meeting.
