Language barriers in science

About the Program

We joined forces with AMC2023 to support your online participation at the conference and make it as smooth as possible. You will have the chance to showcase your science to an international audience and listen to the most recent scientific advances from worldwide leaders in melanoma research.


Please read the following guidelines and contact us if you have any questions. 

Who will be supported?

Melanoma researchers (from students to well-established researchers) living in Latin America can apply. Unlike other Huitaca programs, this opportunity goes wider to include male researchers.

How will you be supported?

Huitaca will provide free translation and editing services for your abstract and poster. This will ensure your message is clear and your science can be understood in English. The judges will select the best abstract based on the quality and impact of your science. 

If your abstract is selected for a poster presentation, AMC2023 will cover online participation registration fees (AU$400 – AU$700). In addition, Huitaca will take care of your poster's translation, edition, design ( ~ AU$ 500), and printing fees (~ AU$ 120). Finally, on 24th March, we will hang the poster for you at the conference happening in Australia.
