Alignment with the World NCD Congress mission and focus
Originality of proposed topic
Contribution to interdisciplinarilty and diversity
Contribution to prevention of NCDs
Appeal to wide audience among Congress participants
Workshop facilitators must be registered for the Congress by the Regular Registration deadline of June 30, 2020 or the workshop will be removed from the program.
A limited number of scholarships will be awarded through a competitive application open to accepted authors from low- and middle-income countries. If eligible, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship. Otherwise, we expect that attendees will be responsible for funding their registration, transportation, lodging, and other travel expenses.
Applications for Workshops proposals are now closed.
