Call for posters

1st International Conference on Advanced Research Methods and Analytics
July 6th & 7th, 2016 · Valencia, Spain
twitter: @carmaconf


The poster sessions of CARMA 2016 will provide an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. These sessions are informal and highly interactive, and allow authors and participants to engage in in-depth discussions about the presented work from which new collaborations, ideas, and solutions can emerge.

Posters should cover the same key areas as the main research tracks and should contain original cutting-edge ideas, as well as speculative/provocative ones. Proposals of new research directions and innovative interdisciplinary approaches are also welcome.

The CARMA 2016 conference will be held on July 6th and 7th, 2016 at the Faculty of Business Administration and Management of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).
