Reminder: Call for Symposia proposals

12th EOU Conference

Cluj-Napoca, Romania

26 – 30 August 2019

New Deadline for submitting symposia proposals: 9 December 2018

We would kindly remind you to submit symposia proposals for the 12th Conference of the European Ornithologists’ Union, to be held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The EOU conference offers a unique opportunity for presenting your research to a diverse audience of European avian researchers, and to highlight a topic that you are passionate about.

A symposium should focus on a clear theme which can be expected to be of interest beyond a highly specialist group. A symposium consists of a 5 min. introduction presented by the conveners, a 25 min. review of the theme and 4 talks of 15 min. each (this includes time for questions and moving between symposia). The symposium is closed by a 5 min. summary by the conveners. We envisage that the review and 2 or 3 talks are organised by the conveners and 1 or 2 talks can be later selected from contributed talks proposed by conference participants. All talks organised by conveners must be confirmed by the time of submission of the application. Please ensure that the talks are given by people from different groups and preferably from different countries. No single person should present more than a single talk during the same EOU conference.

Symposium Proposal: Your proposal should include the title, a brief description of the topic, the name(s) of convener(s) and their affiliations, and the names of presenters with (tentative) titles of their review and talks. It should be no longer than one A4 page. The deadline for submitting symposium proposals is 9 December 2018.

Submission: Submit your symposium proposal as an email attachment (preferably in pdf format) to Erik Matthysen, Scientific Programme Committee Chairman, at
