THE 133ND STATED MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGISTS' UNION and THE 85TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE COOPER ORNITHOLOGICAL SOCIETY will be held jointly on 28 July to 1 August 2015 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.
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 speakers who will present and 1 or 2 alternate speakers (please indicate whether a speaker has tentatively agreed to attend), and (4) requested length of symposium (whole day or half day—a whole day would be approximately 6 hours, whereas a half day could range from 1.5 to 3 hours). We encourage15-min slots for each presentation but will consider 30-min slots depending on the nature of the symposium and overall volume of the scientific program. Symposium organizers will be afforded the opportunity to review abstract submissions for regular sessions and to recruit additional symposium participants from among these presenters.
Workshop proposals should include (1) title of workshop, (2) a 2–5 sentence rationale for the workshop's topic, (3) names and contact information for the workshop's leaders, (4) short description of target audience, (5) requested length of workshop, (5) expected format and required logistical resources (e.g., room size/type, projection equipment, large table, field access, on-site printing), and (6) any required additional costs or charges to participants.
The deadline for submission of symposium and workshop proposals is Monday, 1 December 2014.
Please direct questions or submit proposals to Michael A. Patten (mpatten@ou.edu).
