We will build the programme around the abstracts already received for DevRes2020 which has been postponed until 14-16 June, 2021. However, we will launch a new open Call for Abstracts later this year (dates to be confirmed), which will be directed to submissions related to the Covid-19.
In regards to publications.
The organization committee is not planning for a mutual publication of abstracts and papers from the conference outside the official web site.
Research for development covers a broad range of topics and approaches, which generate knowledge that benefits sustainable development. So far, more than 200 researchers, policy makers, practitioners, funders and other stakeholders have confirmed that they will participate at DevRes 2021, 14-16 June. At this conference, we aim to provide a creative forum for all participating and connecting to contribute on how research for development can advance the transformation for sustainability with focus on low-resource settings. Due to the ongoing global pandemic a special call for abstracts is now directed to issues related to Covid-19, within the SDG framework. The Call will be open October 15th - November 27th, 2020.
The Swedish international development cooperation agency (Sida) offers a limited number of travel grants for researchers from low-income countries (primarily following the DAC list of low-income countries, see list here) whom have had their abstracts accepted for the conference. The travel grant will cover airfare, accommodation, and the conference fee. The number of such travel grants is very limited and you are eligible for the grant only if you are based in and/or affiliated to an institution in a low-income country. A total of approximately 15-20 grants will be awarded.
The travel grants applications can be submitted on-line October 15th - November 27th, 2020.
