The 3rd WECANet General Assembly from 26-27 November 2020

will take place online! 

The Book of Abstracts is online and can be downloaded here.

The 3rd WECANet Annual Assembly will take place online on 26-27 November 2020.

Prof. Lorenzo Cappietti of the University of Florence, prof. Eva Loukogeorgaki from the University of Thessaloniki, and Dr. Vicky Stratigaki from Ghent University will be the “online local” organizers.

Each participant is expected to submit an abstract; the abstract should present and explain your perspective on the Working Group Topic that you have selected. This perspective should be focused towards identifying future activities that you and others may develop within and outside of the WECANet program. The submitted abstracts will give WECANet an overview of how all participants of this year’s Assembly will contribute to the working group workshops and discussions. The abstracts will not be followed by submission of full papers or presentations, but will be published in the electronic Book of Abstracts of the Assembly.

Deadline 1-page abstract: 8 November 2020, by also mentioning Working Group and Working Group Topic for the Assembly.

Abstract template and Assembly participation information with an overview of the Working Group Topics can be downloaded below:

 

STSM grantees and STSM hosts will shortly present the completed (in GP2) STSMs during the Assembly.

Upon abstract acceptance and after the Assembly, participants will receive information for joining the online sessions and networking meetings (virtual round tables).
