ICPS Conference 2018 Call for proposals

3 posts in this topic

CPS Conference 2018, Call for proposals.

After the successful and exciting event in London, UK, it is about time to begin thinking about the next ICPS conference scheduled for 2018. According to the principle of fair global distribution and the set schedule, the next venue should preferably be located in The Americas.

If you or your society feels this should be your turn, please send a proposal by email to marcel[at]carnivorousplants[dot]org.

Please supply in your proposal information on the person/society (with contact details, preferably email) who would like to organize the conference, the intended venue (capacity, equipment), travel details, accommodation, field trip opportunities, how you plan to make a record of the conference (like proceedings) and any ideas you find useful for the ICPS board of directors to make a choice (in favor of your proposal).

Please understand that, while potentially interesting from a theoretical perspective, proposals without a direct (personal) commitment to organize a conference cannot be accepted for serious consideration (or further discussion) by the board.

The ICPS is prepared to distribute information on the forthcoming event to its members and if requested, monetary support to cover advance expenses can be supplied. The conference should, however, be economically self-sustained so a partial payment by the ICPS can be reimbursed subsequently.
The ICPS can provide a grant for the creation of a record (like proceedings) of the conference.

If you have any questions about what should be in a proposal or have questions about what to expect when you try to set up for a conference you can ask your questions by mail at the e-mail address mentioned before. A “Conference-manual” containing tips, tricks and hard earned experience of those who organized a conference before you is available to help you along the way.

Your proposal should be received by the 15th of April 2017.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Marcel van den Broek
President, ICPS

Quick reminder: proposals for the 2018 ICPS conference can be submitted for 1 more week (15th of April to be exact). Responses are coming in so if you want to compete make sure you are on time...we love it when we are spoiled with 1 or more choices as it underwrites the importance people attach to this conference (need I say I agree 1f607.png ? )
