Abstract submission: Submit all abstracts via the conference website at: 


not required. Follow the format explained and exemplified in the Sample Abstract on the RRF

RRF 2014 CALL FOR SYMPOSIA 

 

The Raptor Research Foundation invites symposia proposals for our annual scientific conference. 

Successful symposia at previous RRF meetings have included species-specific and genera-specific 

foci, interactions of raptors with anthropogenic influences, and topics of general interest to 

raptor ecologists. The 2014 meeting will include symposia on: (1) raptors and energy 

development, and (2) the unique ecology of coastal raptors, including coastal migrants. All 

proposals related to the science of raptors will be considered. 

 

Symposia proposals should include: 

 1. Symposium title. 

2. A 2-3 sentence rationale for the symposium’s topic. 

3. Requested length of the symposium (1/2-day or full day; 

symposium presentations will be 20 minutes and will run 

concurrent with general scientific sessions). 

4. Name and contact information for symposium chair (typically the 

same as the proposal author). 

5. Names of authors the symposium chair has recruited to 

participate in the symposium, and general title or description of 

each author’s oral presentation. 

 

The deadline for submission of symposium proposals is 24 May 2014. Chairs of symposia 

selected for inclusion in the conference will be notified by 24 June 2014. 

 

Successful symposia will likely include at least 6 related papers, or enough papers to fill at least a 

half-day session. Prospective symposia chairs are encouraged to suggest symposia even if they 

have recruited fewer than the ideal number of speakers because related abstracts received 

through the general submission process can be used to complete symposia. 

 

Questions and symposia proposals should be directed to James Dwyer (jdwyer@edmlink.com)
