Structure of the Congress

The international participation in the Congress “Domes in the World” has been very large and on a excellent scientific level. All papers were evaluated and those accepted will be published in the Digital Proceedings (a DVD with ISBN registration) and distributed during the conference as well as published on the official website of the congress www.domesintheworld.com.
The Steering Committee has done the selection according to the established evaluation criteria, led by the referees made ​​by the Scientific Committee members: in a first selection were evaluated over 300 abstracts and in a second selection the papers have been evaluated by scholars from many countries around the world.

Finally more than 180 contributions from 28 countries have been accepted for the publication in the congress proceedings. This large number has requested a subdivision and distribution during the congress days in three different moments, according to three parameters:
1) Presentations done by the authors.
2) Papers communications, divided into groups of homogenous content, illustrated and commented on by official referees.
3) The Posters session.
