The 5th SANAP Symposium will be hosted in Hermanus by the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and the South African National Space Agency (SANSA) from 13 to 16 August 2018.  SANAP funds, administered by CPUT, will support certain travel expenses and up to three night’s accommodation for academic participants.  We will endeavour to spread the available budget fairly across institutions. We will organise all accommodation, travel bookings and payments. Reimbursements for privately organised travel costs are not feasible without prior arrangement.

All participants are encouraged to deliver a presentation on their work in one of the two formats. Participants will have the opportunity to deliver either 20 minute oral presentations or digital posters in a 4 minute speed talk oral format. No facilities will be available for traditional poster presentations. Presentations will be grouped according to the MARS thematic areas, and applicants are therefore requested to identify under which of the following themes they wish to present:

  1. Earth Systems
    • A window into Geospace
    • Southern Ocean in the Coupled Ocean
    • Ocean Currents
    • Carbon-Climate Links and GEOTRACES
  2. Living Systems
    • Ecosystem functioning and the response to global change
    • Biodiscovery and biotechnology
  3. Human Enterprise
    • Geopolitics, International and national law and policy
    • Palaeosciences and human history
  4. Innovation, Technology & Engineering
