VI - Colombian Ornithology Conference (Congreso Colombiano de Ornitología)


Recommended Posts


Ibagué, Tolima, Colombia - 22-25 October, 2019

Dear all,

Since 2002 the Colombian Ornithological Society (ACO, by the Spanish acronym) has been working to encourage the scientific study and conservation of birds in Colombia. Once every four years, the ACO organizes the Colombian Ornithological Conference - CCO (Congreso Colombiano de Ornitología), with presentations, posters, and workshops. Although our primary interest is to encourage young ornithologists to present their work to the ornithological community in Colombia, we also want to include researchers and graduate students from outside Colombia that have an interest in Neotropical ornithology. This year our VI-CCO will be in the lovely city of Ibagué (Tolima) during 22-25 October, 2019.  Take a look at the conference website.

We invite you to submit talks/posters, or participate as a sponsor.  You can submit a talk directly through the conference website.  If you want to help support our conference, please consider being a sponsor.
