Publication of Papers 

Ventana V is pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership with the Academic journal Tensões Mundiais. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit the final version of their papers to Ventana, a month after the conference has taken place, for possible corrections. The papers will then go through a second selection process to be part of a special edition in partnership with the journal Tensões Mundiais. Submissions will have to follow the standard and editing requirements of the journal. Further information will be provided in due course. 


Ventana V is willing to provide invitation letters and/or certificates of attendance to accepted papers and workshops upon request. 

We do not ask for any registration fee, however, because we are only a team of early-career researchers, we are unable to sponsor participants' costs of travel and accommodation.
