Research meeting – Conexão Pós

Conexão Pós is the PPGCOM / USP event with the objective of promoting dialogues around the researches of the postgraduate Program. The event takes place in December of each year and all students who have already passed the qualification exam must participate, being mandatory for students with scholarships who passed the qualification exam. The initiative replaces the traditional "Jornada Discente" with a format that seeks to promote integration between master students, doctoral students and professors, to debate the epistemological, theoretical and methodological paths of research. The expanded abstracts submitted will be evaluated by a committee of professors and presented during the event by their authors. We emphasize that the event is also open to the entire student community. Those who are interested in participating in the event must register using the same form as those who will present their research. Each year Conexão Pós produces an e-book with the complete works presented at the event. (according to editing rules)
