Time is running out for those interested in presenting papers or posters at the Malaysia Urban Green Space and Ifpra Asia Pacific Conference 2014, to be held in Penang from 24 – 28 June. Abstract submissions close on 15 May, with full papers due on 1 June.
An impressive line-up of international speakers, including several members of the Ifpra Executive, has already been confirmed. The conference theme, Parks as melting pots and venues for environmental learning, promises to give rise to some fascinating presentations, parallel sessions, workshops and technical visits, particularly given the demographic shifts, multicultural populations and increasing role of urban conservation in the rapidly developing Asia Pacific Region.
A dedicated pre-conference Ifpra member programme has been organised for 23 May and post-conference tours on 27 June 2014 (UNESCO World Heritage) and 28 June (Penang Eco-Trail) are open to conference participants and accompanying guests.
Registration for the conference is $500 USD for international participants, or $550 USD including post-conference tours. Registration closes on 10 June.
Further information about the conference, presentation submissions and instructions for registering are available in the Ifpra Congresses & Events section of our website.
