Satellite sessions are organised and supported by individuals, non-profit groups, organisations, or commercial entities. The Union offers these groups the opportunity to showcase their work, research and programmes, or draw more attention to a specific subject or area by organising a satellite. All satellite sessions are reviewed for compliance with The Union’s mission and vision.
The session organiser is responsible for the session, including communicating with speakers and promptly informing the Secretariat of changes. The satellite session organiser should ensure costs of travel, accommodation and registration for the speakers and chairpersons will be covered. Full payment must be made within six weeks of approval. If no payment is received, the slot will be allocated to another satellite. Approved Prime Time Satellite Sessions will receive one dedicated email promotion and in-app advertisement.
Satellite session submissions will be open until 6 July with a second round of submissions from 7 July – 7 September, upon availability.
Before submitting a session, read the satellite session guidelines.
Once you have read all submission guidance: submit your session online.
