Dear John Agbonifo,
Thank you very much for submitting your proposal to present your research at the 3rd World Congress of Environmental History, to be held in Florianópolis, Brazil, 22-26 July. The program committee received many excellent proposals and we are pleased to inform you that your submission has been accepted.
If you proposed a completed session, we would appreciate it if you notified and coordinated with the others in your session. If you submitted an individual paper proposal, the program committee will be in contact with you in a few weeks to inform you of the other participants and presentations in your session.
Because we were unable to accept all the submitted proposals, we request that you please notify us by 7 December 2018 if you or any of your panelists will be unable to attend the congress. We might be able to provide someone else with this opportunity. Notifying us by this deadline is a professional obligation that is vital to our society and the success of the congress.
In a few weeks we will send you a schedule and the official listing for your session in the program, along with a link for online conference registration. Registration is required to attend and present at the congress.
If you are an early career scholar, or graduate student, or academic from a listed low-income country, you may be eligible for a travel grant up for USD $1000. The deadline to apply is 30 November 2018. Applications need to include CV, motivation, and letter of reference from your institution. To apply:
