It is with great pleasure that Vuwani Science Resource Centre invites you to attend the 20th SAASTEC Conference.
In celebration of 2018 being Nelson Mandela’s Centenary Year, the theme for the conference is:
“Making Madiba Proud….”
This theme allows us to make a critical assessment of the achievements of our science
centres in the past, to identify our strengths and weaknesses as well as our opportunities
and threats in the present, and to develop our institutions in such a way that they make an
even bigger impact in the future, as part of the Mandela legacy.
Call for Papers, Poster Presentations and Exhibitions
Delegates are invited to submit proposals for oral and/or poster presentations. Your
presentation(s) should focus on the theme above. Posters are again encouraged this year.
There will be dedicated poster sessions included in the programme with prizes for the most
innovative posters. Deadline for the submission of proposals is 30 August 2018.
Commercial displays are also welcome. Please see the SAASTEC web site for more details.
