The PROPOR series was initiated in 1993 and has since then being held in Brazil and Portugal. Previous meetings took place in Lisbon (1993), Curitiba (1996), Porto Alegre (1998), Évora (1999), Atibaia (2000), Faro (2003), Itatiaia (2006), Curia (2008), Porto Alegre (2010), Coimbra (2012) and São Carlos (2014).
