At CONTECSI, junior researchers have the unique opportunity to present their ideas for analysis and suggestions by senior researchers. In this way, CONTECSI promotes a closer integration of all groups of researchers, from the youngest ones in scientific initiation to the Master and Doctoral consortia.
As a result of the close relationship developed since 2004 between professional and academic, thousands of works presented in CONTECSI are available for free access at the Archive CONTECSI – ISSN 2448-1041.
