Speakers are invited to choose a theme in line with this "concept note". They will present their topic in plenary session for about 20 minutes, preferably in English). Sufficient time will be allocated for questions and answers with the audience.
At the end of each session, the authors selected for the posters will have the opportunity to present their work in plenary for five minutes in English or French.
All conference documents (invited papers and posters) will be peer reviewed before being presented at the Cotonou conference and then published in the proceedings (which will be distributed to all participants and interested parties).
