CALL FOR WORKSHOPS & SYMPOSIA - AOU & COOPER 2013 (Chicago) - due 11/16/12

Recommended Posts

Following up on a terrific meeting in Vancouver, it is time to consider next year in Chicago:

THE 131ST STATED MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGISTS' UNION and

THE 83RD ANNUAL MEETING OF THE COOPER ORNITHOLOGICAL SOCIETY will be held jointly

on 13-17 AUGUST 2013 in CHICAGO, IL.

 

We hereby invite proposals for symposia and workshops.

 

Symposia proposals should include: (1) title of symposium, (2) a 2-5 sentence rationale for the symposium's topic, (3) names, contact information, and presentation topics of presenting speakers and 1-2 alternate speakers, and (4) requested length of symposium (whole day or half day). Before submitting the proposal, organizers are strongly encouraged to contact potential participants and receive at least tentative commitments from them to attend. Symposia are allowed 15 or 30 min for presentations.

 

Workshop proposals should include (1) title of workshop, (2) a 2-5 sentence rationale for the workshop's topic, (3) names and contact information of the workshop's leaders, (4) short description of target audience, (5) requested length of workshop, and (5) anticipated format and requested resources (e.g., projection equipment, large table). Symposium presenters and organizers are expected to pay registration fees and travel expenses; the AOU cannot provide financial assistance. We encourage symposium and workshop organizers to seek external funds to support participants' expenses.

 

The deadline for submission of symposium and workshop proposals is Friday, 16 November 2012.

 

Please submit proposals to PETER LOWTHER (EM: plowther@fieldmuseum.org).

For questions or comments about your OSNA society membership, please contact business@osnabirds.org.
