Oral Lectures and/or Posters  

The lectures submitted to CIOU2021 must be unpublished papers of a scientific or professional nature. 

In order to participate as a speaker in the Conference, it can be done in the modality of Oral lectures or Poster. In both cases, an abstract must be sent in Spanish and English.

Those accepted abstracts will be published in an ebook with ISBN.
