Application form

The aim of the Assembly is in part to bring early career researchers together for an open dialogue on issues of Northern and global relevance, to work with senior mentors, and to develop international and interdisciplinary collaborations.

All NRF Young Researchers (YR) are required to participate in the Open Assembly both days. Each YR will make a presentation and provide a written final version (word document) of the presentation to the NRF for publication in the conference proceedings. Each YR is required to electronically submit his/her draft paper by the October 1st. 2015 as well as publishing permissions for the NRF if selected as a YR (each selected YR will be provided the opportunity to finalize their papers after the Assembly if they prefer a different version be published in the conference proceedings). Each YR will write and orally present session summaries and actively participate in the assembly open dialogue.

Please complete this form in its entirety. Incomplete forms will not be considered.
