Dedicated time will be made available for side events at lunch time (1:15-2:30pm) during the session. Requests for side events will be accepted until 5 July 2019. Such requests must be made by filling-in the request form, and should be addressed to the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, Office of Legal Affairs, Att. Mr. Fernando Cabrera Diaz, at firstname.lastname@example.org, copied to email@example.com, with an indication of the title, organizing institution(s) and preferred dates for the event. The subject of the message should specify the following: “Request for side event: Intergovernmental Conference”.
Organizing institutions and/or sponsors of side event(s) are responsible for the payment of relevant costs associated with the use of equipment and services for the side event.
Owing to the limited number of time slots available, the Division may not be able to accommodate all requests for side events or preferred dates. It therefore reserves the right to suggest the organization of joint side events, should competing requests be received for the same day. Should the number of requests exceed the number of available days, the Division will exercise its discretion in selecting side events with a view to ensuring variety in the topics covered by the side events and affording an opportunity to all stakeholders to organize such events.
