4)  proposed theme and keynote speakers;
5)  potential sources of financial support. 
 
The Letter of Interest  needs to be co-signed by the individual who will chair the organising committee and an official representative of the host organization.
 
In the case of a university department or research unit, the authorized signatory would be the Chair or Director plus the Dean of the relevant faculty or a senior administrator; in the case of an NGO,  the President and Secretary/Treasurer.
