Wetlands and Global Change: Mitigation and Adaptation

Call for Symposia and Workshops Proposals


The Asia Chapter, on behalf of the Society of Wetland Scientists is now inviting new proposals for symposia and workshop to be held at the 2024 Annual Meeting. In addition to the strong scientific programming and a variety of networking events, symposia and workshop proposals are encouraged. The aforesaid opportunities for proposals are as follows:


Tuesday-Thursday, November 12-14, 2024


Thursday, November 14, 2024

Please carefully review the information below to aid your planning. If you have any questions about the content or process of proposing a symposia or workshop proposal, you can reach out to the 2024 SWS Annual Meeting Secretariat at secretariat@sws2024.org


1. Important Dates and Deadlines:

  • Proposal Submission Start: 15 January, 2024
  • Proposal Submission Deadline: 15 March, 2024
  • Proposal Acceptance Notification Date: before 15 April, 2024
  • Early Bird Registration Deadline: before 15 July, 2024
  • Registration Deadline for Symposia/Workshops Presenters: before 15 July, 2024

2. All participants in symposia and workshops must be registered with the SWS conference.

  • Symposia: A typical symposium gathers 4-6 speakers and provides a well-integrated synthesis of a given topic or theme with broad applicability and appeal for the field of ecological restoration, land reclamation and/or wetland science. It can be structured as a series of formal talks or a moderated panel discussion allowing for greater audience participation. Symposia will be held concurrently with regular conference sessions and will each be allocated a total of 100 minutes. Longer symposia made up of multiple 100-minute sessions are also possible.
  • Workshops: Workshops courses focus on practical applications and professional development, and are intended to impart specific knowledge, skills or methodologies. Workshops will each be allocated a maximum of 3 hours and the venue capacity is approximately 100 chairs without tables. Participants will directly pay a separate fee to the workshop organizers on-site, excluded in the cost of conference registration, and courses will be open to all attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.

3. Proposal Submission Guidelines

  • Proposals must be submitted in English.
  • Symposia may be scheduled at any time during November 12-14. We may have some ability to work with you on scheduling needs but need to maintain flexibility to accommodate all sessions. Except under compelling circumstances, the Program Committee may not be able to accommodate special scheduling requests.
  • We will provide meeting space and on-site logistical support for symposia and workshops. However, the conference is not able to provide any travel or accommodation assistance, registration subsidies or waivers, or any other forms of support for the organizers or individual speakers named in any of the proposals. All participants will be required to register and pay for the conference and to cover their own travel expenses.
  • Symposium and workshop organizers are responsible for serving as the primary point of contact with their invited speakers throughout the planning process. Registration deadline for symposia and workshop organizers and speakers is June 30, 2024. Organizers and speakers who fail to register by this date may be excluded from the conference program.
  • There is no limit to the number of symposia in which a delegate may participate as a speaker.
  • If an individual speaker from your symposium cancels or withdraws, or fails to register for the conference before the deadline, we ask that you find another speaker to replace them. If you are unable to secure enough speakers to complete your symposium or to fill any such gaps, the conference may coordinate with you and assign an appropriate speaker to your session.
  • Please do not submit a proposal unless you are confident that you will be able to fulfill your obligation to organize and deliver the activity proposed. If an extenuating circumstance force you to withdraw your activity, please notify us as soon as possible to the 2024 SWS Annual Meeting Secretariat at secretariat@sws2024.org
