Call for Mini-Symposia Proposals
To increase interactions between scientific communities and enrich the experience of the participants to the conference, the organisers are opening a call for proposal of mini-symposia. These mini-symposia will be scheduled on Monday 15 June 2020 and are meant to address cross cutting and/or emerging issues on global food security to complement the presentation of works and results offered through the content of the main Global Food Security conference programme.
The mini symposia would be open to all registered delegates and would be organised and lead by the proposer. They will appear in the conference programme. Should you wish to organise a closed meeting there would be an additional cost for delegates who are not registered for the main conference*. The conference would offer support in terms of booking a room for use at the Corum and providing a screen and projector, they will also send communication to the attendees. Any additional equipment or requirements would be at the cost of the organiser.
The standard duration of the sessions will be 90 minutes.
The proposal should be submitted by 31 December 2019 by downloading and completing the application form here and emailing it to Martha Enriquez, firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposals will be reviewed by the Conference and Scientific Committees to ensure quality and relevancy and you will receive notification of the result of your proposal by 31 January 2020.
The main criteria for a successful proposal will consider:
- Academic excellence and published results
- Cross cutting issue, emerging or cross sectorial approach
- Connecting local specificities with global challenges
- Transformative potential, links to policy and global agenda
- Feasibility of the session, including resources to ensure the presence of participants
*A €100 + VAT at 20% = €120 rate is applicable to those who are not registered delegates of the main Global Food Security conference being held 16-18 June, and will only allow access to the sessions on Monday 15 June.
