The aim of the Workshop is to demystify the idea that publishing in high impact factor journals is an impossible task or that it is reserved for a small group of renowned experts and Professors from World Top Higher Education Institutions. In this workshop, participants will be guided in all sections that compose a scientific paper, the aspects that need particular attention, and how to address each section of the manuscript. The ultimate goal is to stimulate and encourage MSc and Ph.D. students in their thesis final stage to get “out of the box” and plan, organize, execute and acquire the “fire in the belly” to publish their research outputs.
The Workshop is open to a general Academia audience, mainly targeting students but also open to researchers and early career Professors. The Workshop can also be attended by participants from diverse scientific domains, since it is developed in a general way, with some exercises and examples referring to particular areas (several domains within the scientific field of Chemistry), specifically developed to meet the participants’ background and main scientific subjects
Each registered participant will be entitled to submit ONE ABSTRACT, for oral or poster presentation.
The meeting’s official language will be English.
Abstracts should be submitted via the SPQ registration site. Please, log in using the login and the password provided during the registration process and then proceed with "abstract submission". Please use the Microsoft Word file (abstract template).
The abstract must not exceed one A4 page. Decision between oral and poster communications will be made by the scientific committee upon evaluation of the submitted abstracts. The abstract file should be saved as follows: name_surname_poster.doc or name_surname_oral.doc (or docx in either case).
Deadline for abstract submission: March 16th, 2020 new date
Information about communications acceptance: April 10th, 2020
Accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts (only abstracts of registered participants will be included).
Please make sure your abstract does not contain any spelling or grammar mistakes.
The Portuguese Young Chemists Award (PYCA) attributed by the Young Chemists Group (GQJ) aims to promote excellence in Chemistry developed by young researchers, with particular focus on the scientific impact on the society. The prize is awarded every two
years to recent doctors with less than 35 years and laureates the work done during their PhD. It is opened to Portuguese or foreigner young researchers that received his/her PhD degree in any field of the chemical sciences from a Portuguese
University between January 2018 and December 2019.
This sixth edition of PYCA is open for applications until March 30, 2020.
