The conference announcement for the 4th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference (FSM4) is now available here:

FSM4 will be held in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, where the State Government has recently initiated measures to address FSM with regard to policy, regulatory changes, innovative solutions, and pilots. FSM4 will focus on innovative and practical solutions that can be scaled up, including three tracks: research, case studies, and industry & exhibition.


A call for abstracts will be issued in the coming weeks along with registration information.

Hi Susanne,

Have all the authors been notified of acceptance or rejection of their submitted abstracts by now? I ask because someone e-mailed me today and said that he hadn't heard back about his abstract yet.

Elisabeth

That's a very cool flyer, thank you.

For those of us who weren't able to travel to Chennai: is there any live streaming from the sessions this week?
The live streaming from the SuSanA meeting in Chennai on Saturday worked superbly! I had it on my mobile phone and took it with me everywhere, to the kids' soccer matches, in the car, shopping... I treated it like listening to something live on the radio (the only downside was that as I used my mobile phone for the live streaming, I couldn't follow or tweet on Twitter at the same time which was a bummer).

So we know it's possible to live stream from Chennai, therefore I hope some of the conference will also be live streamed? If not, will it be filmed and the recordings made available afterwards?

Regards,
Elisabeth

Here attached is the presentation I made at the FSM4 session on knowledge management.

This attachment is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.


Some of the questions from the audience included:

1. how many of the 8000 members are active on the Forum (answer about 1% are very active
https://www.wikiwand.com/en/1%25_rule_(Internet_culture)

2.how can the impact of the current development project be measured - what parameters? We use Web Analytics to assess different activities and KM impact parameters relating to sharing, learning and implementation of new knowledge.

3. What about future regional emphasis - We do not aim to compete with established national or regional networks or platforms but aim to complement these. The India chapter of SuSanA has recently been started and the MENA chapter is a new focus.

day3.jpg



@Elisabeth, to follow up on your question:

There was no livestream available, however for some sessions there might be voice recording. We will upload presentations and posters to our availability on the Website, but this still might take some more days as it is a lot of content material!

We will inform you about any updates regarging this in the threat!
