2012 Southeast Partners in Flight Meeting - Call for Papers

2012 Southeast Partners In Flight Meeting
Preliminary Agenda
Online Submission Form
Deadline: Dec. 15, 2011

We are encouraging researchers, agency personnel, and especially graduate students in natural resources, communication, ecology, and biology curricula to make oral and poster presentations that summarize research, monitoring, communication, or management projects addressing any aspect of bird conservation. Participation is anticipated from state and federal agencies, universities, and non-government conservation organizations contributing to bird conservation under the umbrellas of Partners in Flight, the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative, and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative. The poster session will occur during a special evening social on 7 February.

In addition, we are encouraging southeastern researchers in bird conservation to give oral presentations, most of which will be organized into a paper session on the morning of 9 February.   We especially encourage graduate students to present, but request that oral presentations be limited to research efforts that are complete or nearly so, rather than presenting preliminary research results that are largely inconclusive (note however, that preliminary results are suitable for poster presentations).  Researchers from all regions of the southeast, Mexico and the Caribbean, and those involved with any aspect of bird conservation, are invited to participate.

Abstracts for oral or poster presentations (< 250 words, not including title or names and affiliations of authors) should be submitted by using the form below. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Thursday, 15 December 2011. Depending on the response, we may require that some oral presentations be changed to posters.  Oral presentations will be 20 minutes (including time for questions).  The poster presenter is required to be on-hand for the evening poster reception (approx 2 hours).  Details regarding oral presentations and poster dimensions and mounting materials will be provided upon acceptance of abstracts.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
