||Short courses are timely presentations that provide review, instruction, and opportunity for advancement of understanding in a specific field (e.g., geosciences, resources, society) that is consistent with the main themes of the RFG2018 Conference. The short course should provide a means whereby a newcomer to the field can quickly come up to speed on the topic, as well as providing opportunities for more knowledgeable participants to increase their understanding and expertise.
Short courses may start and end at the time they wish, (within reason – e.g., between 8.00am and 6.00pm); 1.5 hours is recommended for lunch and two breaks are normal for a full day course. Short courses can be organized over a 1- or 2-day period, and will be held on Saturday, June 16, and/or Sunday June 17; or Friday, June 22.
Please download the Short Courses Submission Guidelines (PDF file) and budget template (XLS file) for further information before submitting your proposal for short courses. Proposals for Short Courses must be submitted by August 15, 2017.
