Guidelines and Policies

NSChE planned the Abuja2024 to be paperless and 100% digital conference. Hence, all publications including the final program, book of abstract, the conference proceedings and others will be provided to participants as soft copies on a flash drive. The PowerPoint slides will also be provided online after the conference. However, participants can choose to have a hardcopy of the conference proceedings at production cost. You can choose this in the registration page.

Conference Attire
NSChE conferences are generally business casual.

NSChE will provide lunches 14-16 November, coffee breaks 14-16 April and dinner on the 16th at the conference venue. Participants on special diet are advised to speak with a representative of the welfare committee to check if their preferences can be met. This does not guarantee accommodation of individual preferences.

If you have a disability and/or have special accessibility needs and require assistance, send your requests and phone number by email to by 13/10/2024 and a representative of the HSSE sub-committee will call you to discuss your specific needs.

Video/Audio Policy
Individuals officially identified by NSChE may photograph, videotape, and/or audiotape conference events. By attending the conference, you agree to allow your image to be used by NSChE. However, individuals are not permitted to obstruct the views of other participants. NSChE has official photographers who will capture images of key events such as fellowship investiture and awards, post them online in real time and accessed by registered participants to download. Aluminum Banner Stand has been provided at designated locations for pictures.
