Dear OURMedia list members,

Greetings from Goroka! We are in full swing with the preparations of the OURMedia conference in Papua New Guinea from 21-25 July 2014.

Thank you to those who have submitted abstracts. We are in the process of drafting a program and excited about the various presentation proposals we have received. We will post an update on key presenters and initial topics on the OURMedia website next month.

Please see below important information in regards to abstract submission, registration, travel and visa.

DEADLINE EXTENDED
Please note that the deadline for submissions of abstracts have been extended to 30 April 2014. Those who have submitted abstracts to the mid March Deadline will be notified about their submission this month.

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Registration for the conference is now open via the OURMedia website (www.ourmedia-network.org). To register, please download and fill in the registration form, and email it to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
We were able to keep the conference fees low. The conference fee for the week is AUD 150 (approx. US$135 or 100 Euro) for registration before 30 May 2014. The registration fees cover conference pass and kit, meals at the conference and a ticket to the opening of the conference to be held on Sunday evening, 20th of July 2014.

TRAVEL to PNG
You can find information in regards to travel on the OURMedia website (http://www.ourmedia-network.org/?page_id=108)
Please note the following important information:
Many international travel sites (such as Expedia and others) will come up with high prices when typing in Port Moresby as a destination. It is much cheaper to book the flight to Port Moresby directly via the airlines that fly there (Air Niugini, Qantas or Virgin Blue). Travel websites are used best to get from your city of origin to Sydney or Brisbane, Australia or to Bali, Indonesia. Separate flights need to be purchased from these cities to Port Moresby, and then to Goroka. We are happy to assist and advise on your travel bookings.

ACCOMMODATION
We have listed a number of accommodation options on our website (http://www.ourmedia-network.org/?page_id=108). We advise you to fill out the accommodation and arrival form and the OURMedia organising team will assist you with you accommodation booking.

VISA INFORMATION
Please see the OURMedia website (http://www.ourmedia-network.org/?page_id=162) for information on visa. Please note that some passport holders are eligible to obtain a visa on arrival, whereas others will need to apply for a visa in advance. Please email us should you require further information. We can also provide an official invitation letter to the conference if required.

We look forward to seeing you in Goroka!

Verena
