The #Ecsite2021 call for session proposals is now open.

Finding the right partners, being able to share best practice and being inspired by the ideas and work of others can help you set up a really good session proposal.

Whether you're looking for speakers to make a full session proposal, or gathering examples from different organisations or countries, the Conference Forum is just one of the useful tools Ecsite offers.
