Dear colleague, drugs

We are seeking your help to stimulate MOT doctoral students to come to IAMOT 2014 to present and discuss with MOT professors their thesis project at the PHD/DOCTORAL FORUM.

According to some participants of the FORUM held in the previous IAMOT conferences, they benefited very much from the discussion of their projects and appreciated the additional benefits of being waived of the registration fee and receiving a prize of US$ 100. Hoping to provide the same benefits to more doctoral students a new submission deadline for presentation of their Extended Research Abstract is February 15, 2014.

More information about the PHD/Doctoral Forum is available at iamot2014.com or with the organizers bellow.

Thanks from:

Prof. Edi Fracasso emfracasso@ea.ufrgs.br
