The central theme of the Encuentros Paris 2012 Conference will be the exploration of alternatives to effectively integrate Chilean scientists and from other nationalities, trained abroad, into the process of economic and social progress in Chile. This subject converges with the analysis of global issues as international mobility and the contribution of knowledge to the development of emerging countries. Our scope goes beyond a theoretical analysis of this subject, proposing a conference simultaneously focused in practical ways of implementing this goal. Specifically, we propose a gathering space for academics, public institutions and private companies, thus promoting the establishment of cooperative projects among Latin America, Europe and North America.
This year’s program will include seven sessions covering education, communication, economy, public policy and urban studies. Each session will combine expositions from renowned international investigators and young scientists.
Call for abstracts: You are invited to propose papers and/or posters for this event. The official language is English, with the possibility of communication in French or Spanish only to be considered in exceptional cases. The submission deadline is February 28, 2012.
