Conference Program and Agenda

Please follow this link: 11th ICARD | IMWA | MWD 2018 Agenda

Conference
Each day will start with a keynote address (45 – 60 minutes) delivered to a plenary session by an invited keynote speaker. After the daily keynote address, 3 to 5 parallel sessions will start and each session will be introduced with a synthesis of the previous day’s presentations (10 – 15 minutes). When slots run out because there are not enough speakers or a speaker does not show up, a 15-minutes “meet and greet” session will be held, after which delegates will rotate to other tables.

On Tuesday, there will be a conference dinner including music and speeches by representatives of the organizing organisations will be given.

Thursday, during the closing ceremony, the awards listed here under will be presented. Also, the next ICARD presentation and IMWA presentation will be given.

The LOC aims to conduct a paperless conference, with live Apps for the conference programme. For those without smartphones or tablets, the conference will supply tablets on a loan basis. They can also be used to make notes during the conference and delegates can save them online for later downloading. During registration, delegates will be asked if they want to be completely paperless, meaning they do not receive any paper at all. To ensure that the 11th ICARD is more “Africanised”, the LOC considers naming the conference rooms by typical South African commodities, and the conference themes by South African localities.
