Side events are a 1.5 hour slot in the programme. International agencies, programmes or projects share results, introduce new approaches, or consult with the conference audience on emerging topics in the sector, using various formats. We aim to include an exciting variety and balance of topics in our side event programme. There are side event opportunities on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. These are in high demand, so we ask conveners to download the proposal form and apply for these by 3rd March 2017.
