Concerning the event, the Annual Meeting of the SBPC is one of the largest scientific events in Brazil. Held since 1948, with the participation of authorities, managers of the national science and technology system (C&T) and representatives of scientific societies, the event is an important means of publicizing advances of science in the different areas of knowledge and a forum of debates for government policies in C&T.
In addition to the scientific program (conferences, symposiums, round tables, etc.), several parallel events will be held, like the SBPC Jovem (program aimed at elementary and high school students and for children and young people in general), ExpoT&C (a science and technology exhibit), and SBPC Cultural (regional artistic activities).
The event brings together thousands of people including scientists, teachers and students from all levels, and professionals from several areas. In all previous SBPC meetings, more than 10,000 people have participated in some part of the activities.
