ASAPA 2017 Conference

5 - 7 July 2017
University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa

Dear Colleagues

Please note that while a number of you submitted abstracts for the conference and applied for conference funding, you have not registered. As I raised the issue in my previous email, submitting an abstract is not the same as registering for the conference. Furthermore, it was a requirement that all funding applicants must have registered for the conference otherwise the application will not be accepted. Please note that as per the guidelines, this has been considered in the review of all funding applications received. All applicants who submitted requests for funding will be personally informed of the outcome in the near future.

The registration deadline was 30 April 2017 to help us with our planning. Please register to ensure that our planning proceeds smoothly. Further note that we have set the new deadline to be 29 May 2017. Please note that early bird payment option has ended and cannot be extended.

In addition to conference registration, please also ensure that you book university accommodation, if needed, on the online registration form. The university had agreed to block about 150 rooms for our conference until the end of this month. However, with only a small number of rooms have paid for the rooms thus far (with several making requests for accommodation while they have not paid yet). We thus run a significant risk of loosing all the other rooms which would have been blocked for the conference. As a result, conference delegates may have to book accommodation with the outside service providers. That accommodation will be more expensive.

Kind regards,
Ndukuyakhe Ndlovu
