August 23-25, 2017
São Paulo, Brazil
Recurrence plot symposium São Paulo 2017.

Important Note
The speakers have to upload their presentation to the computer in the lecture hall in advance of their talk (in the morning of the day of their talk). The time for the talk is 17 min, plus 3 min discussion.

Both MacOS and Windows machines will be available, installed with standard presentation software (PowerPoint, Acrobat, Preview, and Keynote). You may also bring your own computer or presentation device provided that it is fitted with the appropriate VGA output and that you are capable of installing and testing the machine prior to the scheduled session time.

The prefered size of the posters is A0 or ArchE portrait (i.e. higher than wide). A hook will be available for hanging as well as material for fixing the posters in the support.

All posters displayed at the meeting will be evaluated by a committee for an award recognizing excellence in presentation and significance in contribution to nonlinear science. The evaluation criteria comprise the poster display, the significance of the study, and the clarity of the oral presentation including the ability to answers questions.
