POST-CONFERENCE COURSES AND WORKSHOPS
The second Programme on Ecosystem Change and Society science conference “PECS II – PLACE-BASED TRANSDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH FOR GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY” requests proposals for courses, meetings, and workshops to be held during the three days immediately following the conference, including topics and/or participants directly linked to the conference.
Organizers should submit a proposal (maximum of 500 words) with the following information:
✓ names and contact details of the organizer of the course, meeting, or workshop,
a brief (1 page) résumé of the main organizer (separate page in PDF),
✓ names and institutions of instructors or facilitators,
✓ title and purpose of the course, meeting, or workshop,
✓ justification or background and / or conceptual framework of the course, meeting or workshop,
✓ financing mechanisms for participants (organizers, instructors, and participants), such as registration fees or scholarships,
✓ duration and schedule of activities (hours and days),
✓ space and materials required (to be provided by the organizer),
✓ the number of attendees and their desired professional profile.
These events can be held at the main conference hotel, which is the Hotel “Misión de Los Angeles”, in Oaxaca City, Mexico. However, for the use of this space events will be charged a fee as follows:
● for events less than 4 hours, a mandatory payment for a "coffee break and snacks service" of US$ 8 dollars per person is required,
● for events lasting between 5 and 8 hours, a mandatory payment for "coffee break and snacks and lunch food service" of US$ 20 dollars per person is required.
This expense must be covered by the organizers during the registration period.
Proposals will be evaluated based on: 1) how courses, meetings, or workshops are aligned with the general themes of the conference, 2) the strength of the justification provided for each event, and 3) the proven experience of the organizers or trainers, and the expected successes and impacts of the event.
In special cases, alternative venues in different academic and cultural institutions in the Centre of Oaxaca City may be considered.
