Reminder on the EBCC conference 2016 important dates and info

The organisation of the 20thEBCC conference Bird Numbers 2016 īBirds in a changing worldī which will be held from 5 to 9 September 2016 in Halle (Salle) is in progress. Donīt forget to check regularly the conference website where you find all info.

Please, pay attention especially to the important dates:
The early registration for the conference is already open until July 2016!

The deadline for submission of your contributions (abstracts of talks, speed talks & posters) is until the end of March 2016.

You can also still apply for a travel grant, although the first deadline for application was mid of January. Applications should be done via conference website. Later applications are allocated on first come, first serve basis.

The scientific programme will consist of plenaries, talks, speed talks, posters and workshops. The main topics of the conference reflect the core business of the EBCC:

  • Atlases and studies of avian distribution
  • Biodiversity indicators
  • Surveys and monitoring of breeding birds
  • Surveys and monitoring of waterbirds
  • Terrestrial winter bird monitoring
  • Methodologies and technologies

The ultimate goal of most organisations in the EBCC network is to understand what drives changes in bird populations and what conservation actions should be undertaken to help declining populations. We also invite talks on:
  • Causes of change in bird populations and societal responses
  • Land use change impacts, on farmland, in woodland and in other habitats
  • Climate change impacts
  • Renewable energy developments and their effects on birds
  • Changes in wintering areas: long-distance migrants and migratory connectivity
  • Evaluating the effects of conservation action and policy such as effectiveness of agri-environment schemes and the Role of protected areas

We look forward to your applications and participation on our conference!

Kai Geodeon, on behalf of the National Organising Committee
