Third Pan‐European Duck Symposium (PEDS3)
will be held in Jindřichův Hradec (South Bohemia, Czech Republic), between the 25th and 29th April 2012.
This forthcoming symposium will follow the successful first and second PEDS in Denmark in March 2006 and in France in March 2009.
Two full days of scientific communications, plenaries by leading speakers and an evening poster session are scheduled. All aspects of dabbling, diving or seaduck ecology and conservation will be considered. Scientists from non‐European countries are also welcome. A field trip will be organized to Trebon Biosphere Reserve and the surrounding fishpond area, where participants will be able to observe migrating ducks and other waterbird species, as well as their natural and man‐made habitats (www.treboninfo.com, www.trebonsko.ochranaprirody.cz).
The conference will be held in Hotel Concertino (see www.concertino.cz), in the town of Jindrichuv Hradec (www.jh.cz). There are also other possibilities for accommodation of participants within walking distance in the historical town of Jindrichuv Hradec. We intend to organize shuttle bus transport between Prague Airport and Hotel Concertino on 23th, 24th and 25th April 2012 and back on the 28th and29th April 2012. Furthermore, there will also be the possibility of post‐conference excursions.
All participants are welcome to submit oral and/or poster contributions, or propose the organization of workshops. Contact for more details: email@example.com
