ISFIRE2021 Aithneachadh na dùthcha
Mar a bhios sinn a’ coinneachadh anns an àite mas-fhìor seo, tha sinn ag aideachadh Luchd-gleidhidh Traidiseanta nan diofar sgìrean air feadh an t-saoghail bho bheil sinn a’ dèanamh ceangal, agus tha sinn ag aideachadh an dàimh fhada agus leantainneach aca ris an fhearann. Tha sinn a’ cur luach air agus a’ toirt urram do dhòighean dùthchasach airson eòlas agus ionnsachadh. Bidh sinn a’ toirt urram do na h-èildearan san àm a dh’ fhalbh agus san àm ri teachd a tha an urra ris na fearainn agus na siostaman eòlais sin.

ISFIRE2021 Acknowledgement of Country
As we meet in this virtual space we acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the various territories around the world from which we are connecting, and we acknowledge their long and continuing relationship with the land. We value and respect Indigenous ways of knowing and learning. We pay respects to the Elders past present and future who are responsible for these lands and knowledge systems.

 

The programme will run to UK summer time, Greenwich Mean Time +1 hour. It will be delivered online through Webex, with links available for each session.

There is a full range of keynote presentations across the conference themes and two panel discussions. To suit the digital environment each parallel session (one hour) will include only two presentations, with each presentation having 20 minutes to present and 10 minutes to respond to questions.

An email was sent on 26 July to all registrants which included an attachment with the programme and links to all the sessions. Should you not have received this please email ISFIRE@uhi.ac.uk
