  1. Hello! My name is Andréia and I'm from Brazil. I'm attending to the masters in anthropology and I study the different approaches to death held by the Internet. I'd like to write a paper to The fourth edition of Dying and Death in 18th-21st century Europe, International Conference (ABDD04). If my paper is accepted, can it just be published, without me having to attend at the meeting?

With best regards, Andréia Martins.
