Extension 12 April for OSM

osm 21 logo webBecause of the current disruptions due to coronavirus, the deadline has been extended to 12 April 2020 for session proposals for PAGES' 6th Open Science Meeting (OSM) to take place from 18-22 May 2021 in Agadir, Morocco.

The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) invites you to take an active part in organizing the scientific program of the conference. The OSM program will be comprised of plenary, parallel and poster sessions.

The SPC thanks all those who have submitted a session proposal already. More than 30 sessions have been received, and the extension is for those who were unable to meet the deadline.

The plenary sessions will host keynote talks intended to stimulate discussions on the role of past global change science by providing information about strategies for a sustainable world, on the engagement of stakeholders in active cutting-edge research, and on the added value of interdisciplinary approaches. The parallel and associated poster sessions will accommodate top-level ongoing research.

Up to five sessions will be run in parallel at the OSM, allowing accommodation of a total of 40 sessions.

The SPC will prepare the program based upon your input, aiming for a fair balance between the topics. Please note that the SPC could merge sessions with similar topics (before abstract submission) or with a small number of abstracts (after abstract submission).

Scientists from African institutions are strongly encouraged to submit session proposals. Please inform your colleagues about this opportunity.

You are invited to suggest sessions until 12 April 2020. Please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
