Workshop prepares potential authors for submission of scientific works at the 8th ISI
On January 22nd and 23rd, the Institute of Immunobiological Technology (Bio-Manguinhos/Fiocruz) held, in the auditorium of the Centro Administrativo Vinícius Fonseca (CAVIF), the Workshop on poster submission. The meeting was a preparatory event for the 8th International Symposium on Immunobiologicals (ISI), an international symposium, organized by Bio-Manguinhos in order to promote Brazilian scientific and technological development.
Taught by Daniel Pacheco, researcher at the Modeling for Learning Research Group (GMAP/UniSinos), the event aimed to prepare researchers and potential authors for the journey of preparing and submitting scientific abstracts and work posters for the 8th edition of ISI .
Open to the public freely, the first day of the meeting discussed the reasons and importance of submitting work to the ISI and the main elements of a quality scientific summary, in addition to identifying the main issues that may arise when submitting these materials. The afternoon also included collective construction and review of a summary.
On the second day, individual mentoring with Daniel Pacheco was offered to previously scheduled participants, in order to resolve doubts and guide better directions for summaries already prepared by them.
“ISI is an event that aims to share cutting-edge knowledge in the area of immunobiologicals and encourage Brazilian scientific and technological development. On the other hand, in addition to giving visibility to national scientific production, we seek to encourage participation, offering a space for all Bio-Manguinhos collaborators to interact with colleagues and other researchers, exchange information, and value and visibility of their work. The preparatory event sought to improve the process of preparing abstracts so that it is the best possible for the authors who will submit their work at the symposium”, explains Akira Homma, senior scientific advisor at Bio-Manguinhos and creator of the ISI.
