Link for registration: 

The initial number of places is expected to be 90.

When you register, you will have access to the conference papers, which were kindly sent by Prof. Buchanan. The aim is for participants to formulate their questions in advance, so that we can optimize the time. Questions can be asked via chat or directly to the lecturer. 

The link to access Zoom will be sent, by e-mail, two days before the beginning of the event.

There will be simultaneous translation (English - Portuguese) and we hope to provide automatic subtitles (in English).

The dynamics will be as follows: after Prof. Buchanan's lecture (up to one hour long), the guest debater will have about 15 minutes to formulate his comments. After Prof. Buchanan's reply, the debate will be open to all. We expect to have 30 minutes of open debate.
