Tuesday 1 to Friday 4 October 2019
Today we are opening registration to the European Vulture Conference 2019. For four days in October we will be bringing together scientists, conservationists and the public in the Algarve, Portugal, for an international congress looking at the latest research and conservation projects of vultures in Europe and beyond, in our first European Vulture Conference.
Over the course of the European Vulture Conference we'll have a series of key-note speakers leading the field of vulture research and conservation, workshops, seminars and displays. The fourth day of the European Vulture Conference will be dedicated to fieldtrips where participants will get the opportunity to leave the conference centre and get out into the field to see vultures and other Portuguese birds in the wild.
We are currently finalising the programme and will publish more details in the coming weeks.
To attend the European Vulture Conference we have two ticket types available with lunch and refreshments included in the ticket price for the duration of the four days:
There will be a range of social activities running alongside the main proceedings of the European Vulture Conference. There is an offical Conference Dinner during one of the four days which is an additional €33.25. If you would like to join us for the dinner this is available to purchase as part of the ticket registration.
If you also wish to share your expertise by presenting your work during the conference, please submit your abstract for review by our scientific committee.
Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words can be submitted for oral presentations, speedy talks and posters. You will be asked to indicate your preferred form (standard 15-20 minute talk, 5 minute speedy talk or poster) but depending on the number of submitted abstracts we might not be able to fulfil all requests.
The abstract submission deadline has passed. Many thanks to everyone who submitted an abstract. The scientific committee will now check all abstracts and get back to the first-author if the abstract was accepted for presentation or not by the end of June.
We will shortly be able to present you with a more detailed program. Please don't forget to register for the conference if you have not done so.
