Dear Colleagues:

The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) is soliciting nominations for plenary speakers for IOCongress2018. Plenary speakers at a Congress are given the honour of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their work.Please be aware that a copy of your nomination information will be forwarded to the nominee for their information. Hence, nominations should be made of eminent scientists who are outstanding and engaging speakers and who can make their subject accessible to all ornithologists.

Your nominations need to be submitted through this website (iocongress2018.com) and include

  • the nominee’s name, title, institutional affiliation, full address, e-mail address, and web page address
  • a paragraph describing the nominee's contributions to ornithology
  • a paragraph explaining the reason for nominating this individual.

Nominations for plenary speakers must be received by 1 May 2016. The Scientific Program Committee will meet in August 2016 to select the plenary speakers for IOCongress2018, ensuring that the final roster of plenary speakers will be balanced in all aspects.

A separate call has been circulated to solicit proposals for symposia. Deadlines for symposium proposals will also be 1 May 2016.

For more information on the IOCongress2018, contact the Congress Convener, Dr. Robert (Bob) Elner by e-mail (rwelner@sfu.ca)


We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
