They, in general, are short presentations, in the ARGENCON they will last 20 minutes, where 15 minutes are for the presentation, specifically, and the rest 5 minutes are left for interaction with attendants.


It is the oral presentation of a theme, in a unique session. Although it may include the use of slides, it can be done without using visual means. Generally, there is only one lecturer but it is possible to count with more than one.
