It is recommended that session submitters have initial contact with the proposed speakers before they submit a session to determine their availability to attend the conference, should the session be accepted. If a proposed speaker declines, it is the responsibility of the session submitter to provide the name and contact information of an alternative speaker. Please consider replacement speakers in case the ones initially invited decline the invitation. For speakers representing a UN programme, submitters are required to select the organisation in the list available in the drop-down menu.

If the session is accepted, the submitter is expected to facilitate communication between the session speakers to ensure a coherent session and avoid duplication or contradiction among the presentations.

Satellite sessions

  • Satellite sessions will be held from 25-27 October outside the hours of the core programme: either for 75 minutes in the morning or 90 minutes in the afternoon
  • There should be at least one and up to two chairs. They will be responsible for coordinating the session, communicating with speakers, promptly communicating with the Secretariat about changes and chairing or co-chairing the session
  • The maximum number of presentations is five
  • The session will be reviewed for compliance with The Union’s mission and vision
  • There will be two rounds of review and notification. Proposals submitted in the first round will be given priority in slot selection
  • Full payment should be made within six weeks of approval. If no payment is received, the slot will be allocated to another satellite
