The European Vulture Conference 2019

Tuesday 1 to Friday 4 October 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 of vultures in Europe and beyond, in our first European Vulture Conference.

#Vultures2019

Participating in the European Vulture Conference 2019

Join us in Portugal for Europe's largest gathering of scientists, conservationists and researchers who are working to protect and conserve Europe's vultures.

 

There are two ticket types available:

  • €75 full price
  • €37.5 for student tickets. (You must be a registered student at a university to be eligible)

 

We are currently finalising the programme and will publish more details in the coming weeks. 

Present your work at the European Vulture Conference 2019

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.

Exhibit at the European Vulture Conference 2019

The European Vulture Conference 2019 will be the largest gathering of researchers, scientists and conservation technicians from governmental and non-governmental organisations working with vultures in Europe. Whether you are an artist, photographer or company and you wish to promote your business or work we have space for you to exhibit during the European Vulture Conference. These prices include:

 

Company stand:

  • Basic: 1100€ - includes booth + entrance for two pax + buffet dinner for two pax
  • Sponsor: 2150€ - includes booth + logo on the conference documents and communication + entrance for two pax + buffet dinner for two pax

 

Artist stand:

We want this event to be much more than sharing the latest technical information on vulture conservation. So we are developing the Artist Corner - a place for participants to share their passion for these birds through various forms of art.

 

These are some of the things we are preparing for the event:

 

  • LIVE mural painting
  • Scribing – illustration of conference talks
  • How to sketch a vulture session
  • Vulture Photography exhibit and contest
  • Poetry session
  • Music and dance session
  • Silent auction of vulture art, books and photos for conservation action fundraising
  • Artist booths

 

If you are an artist and would like to be at the European Vulture Conference and promote your artwork, here are several options we have created:

 

OPTION A – 125 €

  • Includes entrance for 1 pax + conference bag + 6 coffee breaks + 3 lunches + your own space at the artist corner (1 table + 1 chair) + conference dinner for 1 pax + field trip (4/10)

 

OPTION B – 37,5 €

  • If you offer 1 activity of 1 hour per day (3 days) for participants (subject to approval by the VCF - send your proposal to info(at)vultures.org)
  • Includes entrance for 1 pax + conference bag + 6 coffee breaks + 3 lunches + your own space at the artist corner (1 table + 1 chair)

 

OPTION C – art piece offer discount (variable)

  • If you offer 1 piece of art for the auction (subject to approval by the VCF - send your proposal to info(at)vultures.org), you get the discount equivalent to the value of the piece of art offered. For example, if you offer 1 painting with a value of 50 euros (starting bid), the registration fee goes down from 125 euros to 75 euros for 1 person
  • Includes entrance for 1 pax + conference bag + 6 coffee breaks + 3 lunches + your own space at the artist corner (1 table + 1 chair)

 

OPTION D – send us your artwork to be auctioned off

 

  • You can showcase your work at the conference in front of the largest gathering of vulture conservationists in Europe without being present. Send us your artwork to be auctioned and help raise funds for tags to equip the Cinereous Vultures being reintroduced in Bulgaria. As a thank you, we will promote your artwork during and after the conference!
