COVID-19

  • Has the 17th BRAZ-TESOL International Conference been deferred?

    Yes, it has. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the BRAZ-TESOL Executive Board has decided to defer the conference in the best interest of all members and sponsors.

  • When and where will the 17th BRAZ-TESOL International Conference take place?

    From July 14 to 17, 2021 at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie in São Paulo.

  • I have already registered and paid the conference fee. What should I do?

    All those who have registered and paid the conference fee will automatically be considered participants of the 2021 conference. If you, for any reason, can’t participate, send a message to braztesol@braztesol.org.br with your personal bank information so that the amount paid can be refunded. BRAZ-TESOL will not refund, however, membership fees.

  • Will BRAZ-TESOL refund any other amount of money invested to take part in the conference in case I decide to cancel my registration?

    No, all the investments made (e.g. airline tickets and hotel reservations) are entirely the participant’s responsibility.

  • What if I cancel my registration and change my mind?

    If you cancel your registration and change your mind, a new registration will need to be done and the registration fee to be paid will be the one valid at that moment, subject to availability.

  • I have submitted a proposal and it has been approved. What happens now?

    All approved proposals will automatically be considered part of the program of the conference. However, due to the conference deferral, confirmation of your participation will be requested at the end of this year.

  • I have submitted a proposal, but I can’t participate in 2021. What happens now?

    If you are withdrawing your proposal, please let the academic committee know as soon as possible via the e-mail academiccommittee@braztesol.org.br.

  • I have submitted a proposal, but I would like to present something different in 2021. What can I do?

    You can submit a new proposal via the new call for proposals, which is scheduled for August 2020. If you are, however, also withdrawing your previous proposal, please let the academic committee know as soon as possible via the e-mail academiccommittee@braztesol.org.br. Please bear in mind that the 2021 conference will prioritize the proposals that have already been accepted.

  • Can I submit a proposal to the 2021 conference?

    Yes. Most of the spots are taken already by the people who have submitted their proposals to the deferred conference, but there will be a new call for proposals in August 2020 to fill in any available spots.
