|Keywords||Desertification, land degradation, drylands,|
As the DesertLand conference aims at attracting presentations of scientists, project leaders, NGO’s, communities, societies but also federal, local, governmental and private (profit or non-profit) organizations and sponsors. Everyone is encouraged to present their work, activities, projects and products either by means of a (2m x 2m) stand and/or an oral or poster presentation.
Considering the equal importance of ‘poster’ and ‘oral’ presentations, the DesertLand conference aims at attracting quite a number of poster presentations, giving the authors not only ample time for discussion during the poster session breaks, but also allow a 5 minutes short oral presentation of the poster in front of the audience.
