Review of proposals

An independent International Expert Committee will select the UMSA applications. Submissions will be evaluated to ultimately develop a high-quality event based on the following criteria:

  • Innovation, creativity and originality of the topic
  • Timeliness and relevance of the subject
  • Practical applicability within the UMSA context
  • Expertise and experience of the presenter

A draft outline of the conference program has already been prepared and will be updated progressively.

Please note that speakers and panelists pre-record their presentations, being supported by our online pre-recording tool. Their contributions will be prepared for the live event, where Q&A and live debate slots have been reserved, so panel and breakout speakers will be able to reply directly and interact with the global audience. – A new experience and a global challenge!
