Side Meetings

Satellite / Side meeting

A satellite / side meeting can be any meeting that is linked to the conference, but run by an organisation  (e.g. a university department or association linked to statistical ecology), and not the Local Organising Committee or Scientific Planning Committee.

Satellite and side meetings remain the responsibility of the organisation who submits the proposal, including covering all financial aspects of the meeting.
A satellite / side meeting can be:

  • A business meeting (e.g. board meeting, AGM, etc.)
  • A pre or post conference symposium or workshop 
  • A breakfast, lunchtime or dinner meeting 
  • A networking event
