The purpose of this survey is to help conference organisers plan the ESEAP Conference 2024 in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia for the community.

Your responses will help organisers understand what level of demand there is for the event (how many people in your community think it is important that the event happens) and begin to get consensus on what topics are important to this community.

Do share this to your community and fill it out before 09:00 UTC, 1 September 2023.

For any enquiries contact
