QESymposium 2019 - register now for online participation

19 April, 2019

Dear colleagues

Register now for online participation in the forthcoming qualitative evidence Symposium!

From 9 to 11 October 2019, the first Symposium on using qualitative evidence to inform decisions in the SDG era will be held in Brasilia. Abstract and workshop submissions for the Symposium are now open (https://qesymposium.org/submissions/) and we welcome submissions from all sectors.

Registration for face-to-face participation in the Symposium will open soon and we hope that many people will travel to Brasilia for this important gathering. If you are interested in the Symposium themes (https://qesymposium.org/programme/) but will not be able to travel to Brasilia, you can register now for the virtual Symposium. The virtual Symposium will include live webcasts of key Symposium sessions and opportunities to participate in plenary discussions.

Join the dialogue by registering for the virtual Symposium here: https://qesymposium.org/virtual-registration/
