It’s been a busy couple of weeks for our peer-reviewers, who read and evaluated the 250+ submissions for papers, posters, films and pictures from the Open Call for Submissions for the RWSN Forum. All authors should have received feedback from peer-reviewers. If that’s not the case, please log into your account to find out the outcome of the evaluation process.
The RWSN Forum programme is shaped by the contributions from this Open Call and we will be posting updates on the programme on our website, where can already find the overall schedule for the RWSN Forum as well as the confirmed Sponsored Seminars on Friday, December 2nd.
We have a few more RWSN Forum updates for you:
- Venue: We are pleased to confirm that the venue for the 7th RWSN forum in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire (November 29th-December 2nd 2016) is the Radisson Blu Hotel Abidjan Airport. The hotel was completed in early 2016 and offers state-of-the-art accommodation and conference facilities. It is only 500 metres from the airport, making it very convenient and secure for international arrivals and departures.
- Accommodation: We have a negotiated a specially reduced room rate for the Forum at the Radisson Blu, and we have identified 11 other suitable hotels within half-an-hour travel time. There is an on-going process of negotiating preferential room rates and undertaking security assessments. Our website page will be updated as we are able to provide more information.
- Early bird registration fee: We have extended the RWSN Forum Early Bird registration fee until July 31st, to allow time for authors to register once they know whether their contribution has been accepted or not. The Forum is open for all to attend – you do not need to be an RWSN member, or an author to participate. You can register here: https://rwsn7.net/participate/register
