Newsletter No. 9 - ISEE-ISES-ISIAQ / Environment and Health - Basel 2013

Dear reader,

This is Newsletter No. 9 of ISEE- ISES-ISIAQ/Environment & Health Conference 2013 in Basel, Switzerland, hosted by Swiss TPH.

1) Early-bird registration closes on Friday, May 31, 2013. NOTE THAT FEES GO UP CONSIDERABLY by June 1 and again by August 1. It is highly recommended to book accommodations too - good offers may be sold out early - and prices go only up!

2) Fee Waiver programme: Swiss TPH was pleased to include > 250 abstract authors in the Fee Waiver Programme, thanks to the many sponsors. All recipients have now been informed.

3) A Conference Fellowship Program is now open until May 31. Please read online instructions carefully and do not apply if you do not fit into the criteria. Most awards will prioritize students or young investigators and participants from low-income or lower-middle income countries.

4) Special offer from German Railways (Deutsche Bahn): In cooperation with MCH Messe Schweiz (Basel) AG the German Railway offers tickets at reduced prices from any German railway station to the conference. Please note that these special rail tickets become available 90 days in advance on
May 21

5) Basel has a long tradition as an environmentally conscious city. We would like the Basel conference to be carbon neutral by implementing measures of CO reduction and compensation to reduce the carbon emissions of all conference activities (catering, travels to Basel, accommodation, conference materials etc.). Unavoidable CO2 emissions will be compensated based on the CO2-footprint calculated at the end of the conference. The CO2 compensation is an inherent part of the sponsoring, thus will be guaranteed, including all travels from all participants. For more information: http://www.ehbasel13.org/english/greenConference.php.
