The Marielle Franco Community-Design Award



Authors whose abstracts were accepted for the 8th ICBR now have the possibility, up to 30 June, to:

— submit a revised version of their abstract to be presented at the 8th ICBR;


— submit the corresponding paper (with between 3,000 and 3,500 words) – please note that the submission of a paper is NOT mandatory; it is only for the authors who opt to do so.

The submission period is now open on the  EasyChair platform.

You’ll find below the templates to be used for the formatted final abstract and final paper. These same templates are also available on the EasyChair platform once you log in.

Please review carefully this final version of your abstract (incorporating, among others, the improvement suggestions and corrections provided by the reviewers) and check its spelling and grammar, since it will be published as is (with no further peer review) in the Book of Abstracts of the 8th ICBR. For those authors also submitting a paper to the conference, please note that the final abstract (up to 500 words) is longer than the abstract to be included in their papers (up to 200 words).

For authors also submitting a paper, please keep in mind that the high-quality submissions will be considered for the different awards and publication opportunities linked to the conference (please check the “Awards & Publications” section).
