5th North American Ornithological Conference, 14-18 August 2012, Vancouver, BC, Canada


15 JULY 2011 is the DEADLINE for submission of SYMPOSIUM AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS for the 5th North American Ornithological Conference. The conference will be held 14-18 August 2012 on the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


Proposals for symposia should contain the following details: symposium title; the names, institution or affiliation, addresses, phone, fax, email addresses of organizer(s) and keynote speaker(s); a description (500 words maximum) of the objectives and conceptual flow of the symposium. In addition, provide a separate 300 word justification for why this symposium is important and timely (i.e., in terms of fundamental science or the application of science to address management problems) and why it would be interesting to attendees (e.g., to attract >100 participants). Proposals that provide opportunities for speakers to present alternate perspectives or evidence about controversial topics are encouraged. Additional information about the application process, selection criteria, presentation timing and format, and symposium structure will be placed on the NAOC web site at http://www.naoc-v2012.com.


Symposia will be limited to half-day sessions (approximately 3 hours, composed of 15 or 30 minute time slots); there will be no full-day symposia. Symposium and Workshop organizers and presenters will be expected to pay for full conference registration, and will be responsible for their own travel expenses. Presenters at symposia will not be considered for presentations in contributed paper sessions (i.e., limit of one oral presentation per person at the meeting). Abstracts for papers given during symposia must be submitted as part of the normal abstract submission process and deadlines (to be announced). Symposium organizers should confirm attendance by prospective speakers.


Proposals for workshops should contain the following details: workshop title; the names, institution or affiliation, addresses, phone, fax, email addresses of organizer(s) or instructor(s); a 300 word justification for why this workshop is important or useful to attendees; maximum number of participants; and time, space and resource (e.g., computing) requirements. Workshops will be scheduled either before, during (evenings) or after the main conference.


The deadline for submission of proposals for Symposia or Workshops (Word file or PDF; in English) is 15 July 2011, with decisions being sent to applicants within 2 months of submission. Send enquiries and proposals to NAOC2012@ec.gc.ca. In some cases, symposium and workshop organizers may be contacted by the Chair of the Scientific Program Committee (Bob Clark) prior to final decisions to discuss proposals.
