The Conference es bilingual. Papers either in Spanish or English are welcome. Proposals for full sessions are also welcome (four papers, two hours sessions). We recommend Ibero-American scholars to send their papers in English, which will allow a better discussion of their research, as well reinforce it and increase opportunities to publish them in national and international specialized journals.
