Oral Presentations

At this year’s IUCN UK Peatland Programme conference we will be offering a forum for a limited number of oral presentations on Thursday 6th of October. The hope is to create a platform for showcasing the diverse community and work on UK peatlands. As such we welcome abstracts from all corners of the peatland community whether they be artistic, academic, about policy, community engagement or from practitioners.

Presentations must be no longer than 12 minutes in length to allow for questions afterwards. To submit an abstract please download the abstract form and return it to by 9 am Monday 15th of August. If your presentation is selected, you will be informed on Friday 19th of August. If you are selected and not already registered, you will be supplied with a discount code which will give you access to the early bird rate once again. Selected presenters must be registered before the 16th of September.

Poster Presentations and Exhibitors.

There is opportunity through-out the conference to exhibit a poster or have an exhibition stand if booked in advance. You can request to present a poster or exhibit during the ticket registration process and limited spaces will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. We will confirm exhibitor allocations a minimum of 30 days before the conference.

Please note: you must be available to present your poster or exhibit during the evening session on Tuesday 4th of October.
