World Whale Conference 2017

Conference Workshops  – Sunday 25th June 2017

Workshop Proposal Submission Guidelines

If you wish to submit a proposal for a Workshop please complete the form before 30th May 2017.

Workshops are open to all delegates and on all subjects relating to cetaceans. If room space becomes limited, priority will be given to workshops focused on African cetaceans or of likely interest to African participants.

It will be the responsibility of the workshop organiser to collect fees and pass them over to the Conference Organiser.  It will also be the responsibility of the workshop organiser to provide receipts to attendees, and create a list of attendees – copy to the Conference Organiser. Fees should cover the costs of hiring the venue and any facilities required, and if provided, all refreshments. The workshop organiser can look for sponsors to cover these costs.
