  1. What would it cost?

    • As soon as possible we will publish the link to the website with all the details.

      Thanks for your interest

  2. There would be the possibility that they offer some service of “kindergarten” O “camping” during the congress dates for those of us who are interested in also attending as speakers, but who have small children (4, 1 years old) and have no one to leave them with. It would be interesting and appreciated if these aspects were considered to contribute to improving the reconciliation of mothers/fathers who belong to the same area, in this case, scientific.
    Thank you in advance,
    all the best

    • Thank you very much Erika.

      Interesting suggestion. We are going to pass it on to the organizing committee.

      a greeting

    • Strongly agree! Another scientist mother here juggling to reconcile! Thanks to the organization for looking for options!

    • I think it's a great idea, even if you have to pay a supplement, but it would make life much easier for families who work in the same sector.

  3. I share the suggestion, there is a considerable part of the scientific community that has other people in their charge and this should not be limited in terms of attendance at congresses, an activity that is quite relevant within our area.

    • Hello good. We have forwarded the suggestion to the organizing committee and from what we know steps are being taken to see if something can be done.

    • Hi, what was the decision about kindergarten? It is important to many people to know it and thus can do the inscription.
      Thank you so much!!!

      • At the moment we don’t have any news yet.
        Please, be patient. We are trying our best.

        • I would like to know if there is any response to the suggestion/request I made regarding the possibility of service of “kindergarten”., even when it involves an additional cost. In my case, my husband is invited to give a talk and I, who belong to the same area, would like to be a speaker on my work.


          • Good

            We are going to have a board of directors on Tuesday of next week and that is one of the points that will be discussed.


  4. I think it's a great idea, even if you have to pay a supplement, but it would make life much easier for families who work in the same sector.

  5. Will there be an opportunity to virtually attend the Congress?

    • Thanks for the interest.

      Not at the beginning. In any case, you have all the information about the congress on its website.

  6. I can't find anywhere the size that the posters should be. Could you give me some indication?
    Thank you so much

    • Sorry. We haven't seen the message until today. I tell the organizers.

      a greeting

  7. Hello, there will be an opportunity to attend, how much does it cost and what are the requirements, please, I would like to attend

    • Good

      All this information is available on the congress website, whose link is indicated at the entrance

  8. Hello, I'm trying to send an abstract for a poster but it won't let me send it. I've put the title, abstract and authors without problem, but when I send it, it asks me to fill in the thematic field, which doesn't give access to the tab… I don't know if anyone else has run into this problem… I would appreciate comments, regards.

    • Good

      The best thing is to send an email to the congress organizers. In any case, I'm going to comment on it at the Board of Directors meeting.

      a greeting

      • Hi, okay, I'll do that.
        Can you provide me with the email address where I should send my access problem to the thematic field tab?
        Thank you so much.

        • Hola

          I passed your query to the organizers. I think they are going to put a contact address on the web. As soon as I know more, I'll tell you.

          a greeting

  9. Good morning, does anyone know what finally happened with the suggestion of the possibility of a service “nursery” for the congress.
    Thank you so much!

    • Hola

      Yesterday the organizers told us that they are still negotiating alternatives with the UBU. I can not say more. As soon as there is news we will publish it.

      a greeting

  10. Good morning, the congress has 2 cultural activities, such as a visit to the Cathedral and another as I see in the program, will it be possible to pay a supplement so that my husband can attend these activities? thank you.

    • Good

      You will need to contact the conference organizers.

  11. Good afternoon, is an inscription necessary for each poster/communication? Or can one author submit several?
    Thank you so much for your attention. All the best

    • Good

      We have forwarded your question to the organizing committee.

      a greeting

  12. The only idea that occurred to me to make italics appear in the summary that I have sent is by adding html codes. The document appears correctly in the preview, but when I download the word or pdf those codes are incorporated as text.

    I have sent an email to the email that appears on the congress page but I don't know if it is the right email for these questions.


    • Good

      It seems that the comment is not complete and the first part is missing. We assume there seems to be a problem with the italics.

      In principle that is the contact email ( In any case, we will discuss it with the organizing committee.

      a greeting

  13. Hello good,
    Can the abstract be sent in English? Or does it have to be in Spanish?

    • Good

      You must write directly to the organizing committee of the congress. The contact email is the one that appears on the web:

  14. Good afternoon, on the web I have seen that there are discounts for students, what requirements must be met? Age?
    And on the other hand, would there be a discount on registration for teachers? Thank you so much.

    • Good

      For the student discount you first have to become a member of the SEM and indicate that you are a student (to apply for membership you must go to the following link:

      Teachers do not have a discount.

      a greeting

  15. Good morning!

    I would like to know when it will be known if the abstracts uploaded to the application have been accepted as oral communication or poster. On the web I see that the date is May 16 but we have not received any confirmation email and we do not see new information on the subject in the accounts of the participants.

    Thank you very much and greetings.

    • Good

      A notice appears on the congress website that the decision on the accepted communications has been delayed until May 23, 2023 and the reduced fee registration until May 30, 2023.

      a greeting
