STUDENTS & EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS AND PRACTITIONERS

Students and early career researchers and practitioners are encouraged to participate in the conference. In addition, a dedicated MasterClass Day will be held on the Friday following the formal conference.

The MasterClasses will be held in the beautiful setting of the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens  at the SANBI offices. See more about Kirstenbosch Botatnical Gardens at the following link http://www.sanbi.org/gardens/kirstenbosch

ATTENDANCE GRANTS

We will be offering a limited number of Attendance Grants to the conference. If you are from a Low or Lower middle income country, and your abstract is accepted  or you are facilitating a Special Session, you will be eligible to apply for an Attendance Grant.

The grant will cover registration fees (this includes meals at the conference ) and dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation, and airport transfers – in other words, all your costs in Cape Town. In some cases, we will provide funding for travel, but it would help enormously if you are able to fund your own flight to Cape Town.

The call for applications for attendance grants opens 16 Feb – 28 Feb 2018. Please sign up for the conference newsletter to receive updates.

Applications will be assessed by the conference Local Organising Committee in an equitable and transparent way.

TOOLSHED PRESENTATIONS

Tool shed – a special venue at the conference – will host short presentations on novel adaptation tools.

Please contact us at info@adaptationfuturese2018.capetown to discuss unique ways to highlight your adaptation innovations.

PROJECT EXPO

The Project Expo displays innovative adaptation projects from a diverse range of countries. The focus will be on success stories as well as opportunities to improve implementation, and lessons that can be learned for future similar projects. The project could be a poster, a 3D model or a video. Each project is unique and will have specific requirements.

Please contact us at info@adaptationfutures2018. capetown if you would like to exhibit a project at the conference.
