    Authors

    The main language of the symposium is English. However, papers can also be submitted in Spanish or Portuguese. All submissions are peer-reviewed. The accepted papers will be published in a conference proceedings with ISSN, indexed at SCOPUS.

    Abstract submission: Regardless of the type of submission, in a first stage, contributors are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words using the web submission platform above. You have to register on the web platform to submit an abstract. Web platform registration is free and does not necessarily require a symposium registration.

    Final submission: Submissions will be double reviewed. After notification of acceptance, authors are invited to prepare the full version of their work using the corresponding template and submit it using the web submission platform above. In the case of papers, the full version should have 6 to 8 pages (Microsoft Word file). We suggest that you download and save the required template and copy your own text into it, in order to preserve the adopted styles and other formatting elements. Accepted contributions will be invited to make a presentation at the symposium.

    PAEE/ALE'2018 particularly welcomes student contributions to the symposium. Students doing project work in their undergraduate or graduate engineering degrees are invited to submit papers on their learning experiences in project work. Student papers will be candidate for the Student Paper Award.
