Accepted Papers must follow the ethical code of AMIE, available at: Ethics AMIE
CIMIE is an international conference with the highest scientific and ethical level. Papers constitute the way to present knowledge to colleagues of the scientific conference for its discussion and feedback.
The first step for allowing the presentation of works in the congress is the acceptance of the proposals, although it only acquires the category of paper after being presented by its authors. In this sense, papers will be only certified for those present authors in the moment of its exhibition during the conference.
Langagues for papers presentation
Papers can be presented in any language, although it is necessary notify in which language will they be presented in order to publish this information in the programme and let people know it..
We will try to gather presentations which will be presented in the same language as far as possible. If there is a chance, papers which will be exposed in a different language in the same session, will be placed at first, so that people that would prefer not to attend to this presentation could arrive later if they want.
