What is a workshop ?

A workshop is a 60 to 120 minutes session open to all attendees that allows organizers to share specific knowledge, skills or to build research/conservation projects. Meant to be interactive and directed by one or several organizers, workshops can include group discussions or hands-on training.

Who can submit a workshop proposal ?

Anyone may submit a proposal.

To ensure that the conference is as diverse as possible, individuals may not submit more than two proposals.

Workshop's organizers must register to the conference and pay for the registration fees (official partners may not have to pay the conference's fees, depending on their partnership agreement).
