Scientific programme of the IAHS Scientific Assembly, July 2017, Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Submission of abstracts for the various symposia and workshops is now open via the Copernicus online system.

Please note that the submission deadline for all sessions has been extended to 6 March 2017.

UNESCO may cover the abstract processing charge for applicants for Session #26 upon request and pre-submission of the abstract to Renée Gift (r.gift@unesco.org) and Nicole Webley (n.webley@unesco.org), with priority given to students as well as individuals from developing and least developed countries.

Please also note that PIAHS volumes will now be post-published.
