The UT Austin Portugal 2021 Annual Conference, under the theme “Connecting the dots: interdisciplinarity as a way to build up resilience”, happens this year in the city of Porto, on the 20th and 21st of October, offering a mix of hybrid and virtual-only sessions, to discuss how interdisciplinarity in science is helping societies become more resilient and able to cope with adversity and distress.

Several thought-leaders have already confirmed their presence at the Program’s most anticipated event of the year. Make sure to join them, be it remotely or in person.

Two warm-up sessions on the 18th and 19th of October will get you in the Conference’s frame of mind.

Call for e-Posters | Deadline – 30th of July


The Program is inviting researchers and practitioners to submit proposals for e-posters to be displayed at the Conference’s Virtual Gallery as of the 20th of October.

Selected e-posters across the scientific areas of the Program are expected to highlight novel, ongoing, or concluded research work that draws on the intersection of different scientific fields and/or applications areas to advance state-of-the-art knowledge and/or lead up to high-impact innovation. This means that authors are invited to bring to the fore either more exploratory or closer-to-the-market research work developed in Portugal, at UT Austin (including TACC and MDACC) or even in other ecosystems outside the Program’s geographic scope.

Authors interested in presenting work-in-progress related to UT Austin Portugal’s 2019 Exploratory Research Projects and Strategic Research Projects should not apply for this Call for e-Posters. Their e-posters are automatically accepted for presentation at the Annual Conference according to the guidelines to be provided.
