Pre Conference Workshops

Deadline for abstracts for pre-conference workshops: 30 June 2019

Pre-Conference Workshops (which are for paid registrants of ICUH2019 only) are full or half-day working sessions that bring together groups of ICUH2019 registrants (10-60 people) with the aim of advancing work on a specific project or providing a training experience to ICUH2019 attendees.

Limited space is available for Pre-Conference Workshops on:

  • Monday 4 November 2019 for full day (8:30am-5:00pm) or half-day (8:30am-12:30pm or 1:00-5:00pm) workshops; or
  • Tuesday 5 November 2019 for half-day (8:30am-12:30pm) workshops.

Although the ICUH2019 conference host will make every effort to secure complimentary meeting space for these pre-conference workshops, the organisers of the submitted workshop will ultimately be responsible for the cost of meeting space (if any), audio-visual, catering (for any breakfasts, lunches and/or coffee breaks requested as part of the session) and materials, etc.  Pricing for these items will accompany the acceptance email for those selected for a pre-conference workshop.

The ISUH and ICUH2019 conference host are unable to provide any scholarship support or waived/reduced conference registration fees for any pre-conference workshop organisers, speakers or participants.  The organisers or individual speakers/participants of the workshop will be required to cover the costs of all conference registration fees, travel and accommodations.

Organisers of selected Pre-Conference Workshops must ensure that all their selected speakers are registered by 19 August 2019 for their workshop to remain on the conference agenda.
