As previously announced, the 2nd FALAN Congress will take place in Buenos Aires from 17-20 October 2016 (www.falan-ibrolarc.org).
The Scientific Committee is in the process of planning the conference. To ensure that a broad cross-section of disciplines within the field are represented in the program, the Scientific Committee invites you to submit a Symposium proposal, so that you can have significant input into the intellectual content of the meeting.
Proposals should be submitted to the Scientific Committee on the FALAN Symposium Form through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 1st, 2015. For more information see also www.falan-ibrolarc.org.
The most important criterion in the selection process will be the scientific quality of the speakers. A balanced distribution of scientists from different countries within the region will also be considered a requirement. The number of speakers can either be 3 or 4.
It is worth mentioning that despite the Organizing Committee is trying its best to secure funding, the budget will unlikely be sufficient to sponsor all activities. Thus, we highly recommend chairs to alert potential speakers that they will likely need to provide their own support for attendance (travel and/or accommodation).
