Make Your Velfie

Use your smartphone, computer or digital camera. Keep it short and sweet (2 minutes). Be creative and have fun!

Consider answering one of the following questions in your Velfie, as a message to the IUPESM community:

  • Why are you coming to the Congress? Science? City? Networking? Business? Etc
  • Are you coming to present some of your research? Describe it in less than 2 minutes!
  • What are you most looking forward to at the Congress?
  • Are you a student? If so, what is your reason for going?
  • What are you hoping to learn at the Congress?
