Call for workshops

We are pleased to announce the opening of a call for workshop proposals, to be integrated into the main Symposium Programme.



Workshops, some of them purposely made in connection with IWWG tasks groups, have always played a key role in the organization of Venice Symposia, providing a forum where topics presented during oral sessions can be examined in greater detail and the hottest issues in the field of waste to energy appropriately discussed.



As their emphasis is on critical discussion and detailed exploration of a topic, workshops are primarily addressed to experts and usually seeded by a selected number of introductory lectures delivered in order to open discussion between participants. 

Proposals can focus on topics which are currently rising to the forefront of waste to energy discussion, ongoing research projects, controversial subjects as well as issues of general interest. 

HOW TO APPLY
Proposals should be prepared using the template provided and  submitted by email to papers@venicesymposium.it no later than February 28th, 2017. The following details should be included:

  • Workshop Title
  • Organiser/s (name, surname, affiliation, email address)
  • Proposed Lenght
  • Short Description / Scope of the Workshop
  • List of speakers available to deliver short introductory presentations (all speakers must be regularly registered as conference participants either for the day of the workshop or the full conference week)
  • Maximum number of participants allowed (if any)
  • Equipment needed (if any)


After the conference a final report of the workshop may be sent to the Organising Secretariat for publication on the official symposium website.
