Are meals included in the congress?
Yes, we will offer coffee and lunch services during the two days of the congress
Can I go to the congress only as attendee if my work is not selected for an oral communication?
Yes, but you must notify it sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org once the resolution of selected works for the talks is published.
If my work is selected for oral communication, can I also present a poster?
No, you can only attend the congress falling under only one category. If you present oral communication, you cannot bring a poster.
The work I present is co-authored with another colleague. Can we both attend the congress with only one poster accounting for both?
No. If two people have participated in the same work and want to present it in the congress, they must bring it in independent works, even if the content is the same or similar. If they do not want to present two independent works, one will be registered as the poster presenter and the other as attendee.
In what language should the abstract be written?
The abstract must be written in English.
If my work is selected for oral communication, should I present it in English or in Spanish?
The choice of the language during the oral presentation is up to you, it can be in Spanish or English, but the presentations in English will be evaluated positively. Besides this, even though it is a Spanish national congress, foreign PhD students residing in Spain are welcome and may find it easier to understand the presentations in English.
Is it possible to park in the congress enclosure?
Parking near the congress venue is difficult and we advise attendees to use the public transport to get there. However, if you find yourself forced to take the car, there are several possibilities:
Parking in the public paid parking of the Hospital La Fe: for more information about the rates, please access this link http://www.aparcamientolafe.es/tarifas.html
Parking in the free parking lots around the congress facilities: This option is limited, as they get usually occupied very early. However, if you go in the early morning, you may find some free spaces. See map blueprint.
Parking in the parcels of the waste grounds of the surroundings: It is the most probable option to find a vacant lot, as long as you do not mind accessing with your car to unpaved areas. See map blueprint.
Is it allowed to bring companions as listeners?
No, spectating is only allowed to those who have paid the congress fee and meet the requirements for registration.
