Final presentations will be accepted until: 21 September 2020 at 23:59 UTC-3 (Uruguay time)
Event date: 5-9 October 2020

Applicants must submit a summary and a draft of the slides of their proposed presentation along with a brief biography and photograph using the form available at https://vulcano.lacnog.org/e/lacnog2020


If your work is selected, you authorize LACNOG and LACNIC to publish your name, photograph, biography, and final work in the event program.


Regardless of the chosen format, all works must presented in person at the event venue. 


Given the current pandemic caused by the coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak, there is the possibility that the event may be held in virtual format, in which case speakers will be notified in advance and the necessary adjustments will be coordinated based on the schedule determined by the Program Committee.


Applicants whose proposals are accepted will be exempted from paying their in-person event registration fee but will not automatically receive financial assistance for their travel and/or accommodation expenses. However, LACNIC offers a fellowship program for attending the LACNIC 34 event which will be held jointly with LACNOG 2020 to which speakers can apply independently. When submitting your draft to the LACNOG Program Committee, please specify whether you are applying (or planning to apply) for a LACNIC fellowship.


Speakers presenting their work at the LACNOG 2020 conference will receive a certificate acknowledging their participation.


Guidelines for Submitting a Presentation for LACNOG have been prepared containing a description of the criteria that will be considered when evaluating each proposal, presentation format details and other data. These Guidelines are available at https://www.lacnog.org/guiapresentaciones/.


Communications with the Program Committee will be handled through pc at lacnog.org.


We thank you in advance for your attention and look forward to your proposals for LACNOG 2020.


Program Committee
