2. Invitation to Sponsor or Support the Conference

You are interested in becoming a sponsor or supporter of the largest national conference dedicated to biosciences and related field; CBS give you the opportunity to realize that desire.

Cameroon Biosciences Society invites you as either an interested colleague or organization to sponsor or support this conference, and if you or your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor or supporter, please do not hesitate to contact us (see contact below).

3. Conference Support

As the conference is a non-subsidized event, it depends heavily upon the goodwill of supporting organizations. Subsequently we ask you to consider our invitation to participate in this unique event. Your organization can make a very meaningful impact in development of biosciences and related disciplines by reconfirming or becoming an “supporting organization” of the conference. Such support is greatly appreciated and in return you are offered the following:

  • The opportunity to appoint one official representative, who is allowed to attend the local preparatory meetings in Bangangté (Cameroon) and the meetings of the Executive Bureau in Yaoundé (Cameroon) in the role of observer.
  • The opportunity to have public relations material included in all conference bags.
  • The opportunity to have your logo, name of institution with a link to your website included on all relevant conference materials, including the conference website.
    Recognition of your support during the opening and closing ceremonies of the conference.
  • The opportunity to have a booth (table + 2 chairs) at the exhibit area for the duration of the conference. However for that you need to register at least 2 delegates (in certain cases).
  • To receive upon request 10 complementary copies of the book of conference proceedings.

4. Requested from you (In return):

- To disseminate official conference announcements and public relations material.

To cover travel and accommodation costs for their official representative(s), in order to attend the local preparatory meetings in Bangangté and the meetings of the Executive Bureau in Yaoundé, and the conference.

To consider a financial contribution.

5. Contribution of the Sponsoring

One important goal of the conference sponsor is to support the attendance of delegates who have abstracts of merit selected by the scientific committee, but whose participation is hindered by financial limitations. In lieu of traditional conference sponsorships, supporting organizations are requested to consider a financial contribution which is being managed for that matter.

For example, a delegate (student, doctoral, postgraduate or others), who would be otherwise unable to present their work at the conference, might receive a stipend to partially subsidize their transportation, conference fee, and hotel accommodation for a maximum of 5 nights. While the costs involved are relatively modest, the potential for high leverage improvements for service users, staff, and organizational effectiveness provided by delegates’ attendance at the conference should not be underestimated and represents an opportunity to achieve a very meaningful return for your financial support. Feedback from attendees at past conferences has highlighted the benefits of having a rich blend of conference participants.

If your organization wishes to contribute, please donate your financial contribution preferably before October 10, 2016 in order to know in time how many delegates who have abstracts of merit selected by the scientific committee, can be informed before starting other arrangements to attend the conference.
