We are pleased to announce that the registration for the next Global Flood Partnership Annual Meeting 2019 is open! This year's meeting will take place on 11 - 13 June 2019 in Guangzhou, China, hosted by the Sun Yat-sen University.
If you are new to the GFP community you may want to have a look at the report of last year's GFP Conference in Delft, Netherlands (https://gfp.jrc.ec.europa.eu/node/63 ). Together we will discuss how to best foster the dialogue between scientists and users and how GFP products and expert knowledge can work in synergy to provide key information to emergency managers at different stages before, during and after severe floods.
Draft Agenda: A first draft agenda is attached to this email. Note that the agenda will be updated depending on the contributions received from the participants.
Logistics & Visa: Logistics and Visa information is provided at the end of the draft agenda attached to this email.
Registration: There is no registration fee. To register CLICK HERE. The registration deadline is 10 April 2019!
Similar to last years meeting there will be different opportunities for participants to present their work and exchange ideas, and make the meeting interesting and lively. This includes a "Marketplace" session, "Ignite talks", an interactive session, poster pitch session and a Guided tour of the Guangdong Emergency Management Agency.
For any additional details, please see https://gfp.jrc.ec.europa.eu/node/67 . Feel free to circulate this announcement to any interested colleagues.
