FAQ

How can I register for the conference?

We will be accepting applications through an online application that will become live closer to the conference date.

Who can attend?

We welcome undergraduate students of any discipline from any UAE university to collaborate with us at PHTT 2017.

What does the participation fee cover?

The participation fee serves to offset some of the costs (close to 10%) associated with organizing the conference. In addition to the conference programming, all participants will receive meals both days, merchandise including a conference t-shirt, and certificates of participation.

Should I commute to the conference?

Yes. The conference has had participants from all emirates, and all but a couple of non-NYUAD participants chose to commute to the NYUAD campus for the conference each day. Hence, we’ve decided to not offer on-campus housing to outside participants this year, and our schedule is designed to accommodate long commutes; the conference starts around 9am and ends around 6pm. If you would like to stay in Abu Dhabi for the night, please contact us to receive our university hotel rates.

Is an in-depth knowledge of the issue a pre-requisite for attending the conference?

Not at all! We believe the best interventions arise from cross-disciplinary cooperation, and we will provide extensive pre-conference preparatory material along with mentoring and lectures during the conference.
