The proposed program is a follow-up to the first IOCSEA 2012 hosted by Prince of Songkla University held in Phang Nga. The conference will focus on the theme of “Setting priorities for the future of SE Asian Ornithology” The rationale for the joint meeting is to attract a wider and more international audience and give ornithologists & students more opportunity to interact with researchers from the region. As graduate students of many universities are now required to present at international conferences as part of their degree or scholarship requirements, this would also provide a true international meeting for them.
The primary participants will be scientists/ornithologists/graduate students, working in ornithology and related topics in South East Asia and other nearby regions. The knowledge of senior international scientists will be shared among the participants in a series of plenary talks covering many different aspects of ornithological research as well as issues related to conducting research in related fields. Graduate students and young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work in an international meeting and receive scientific feedback from a diverse group of ornithologists & ecologists.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Conservation biology
- Habitat ecology
- Survey techniques & assessment of survey techniques
- Natural history
- Behavioral ecology
