Migrant Landbird Study Group

Promoting collaborative research for migratory landbirds across flyways

The MLSG hopes to have a presence at the 14th Pan African Ornithological Congress to be held in Dakar, Senegal 17-21st October, 2016.

An invitation to submit proposals for symposia has been circulated. Symposia provide the organisational structure for the PAOC and highlight topical and important themes within the overarching theme of African Ornithology. They should provide fora for a wide representation of ornithologists to discuss and synthesize the latest developments in the field.

Symposia could be half a day or full day programme and should include one keynote speaker (allocated a 30 minute slot) per half day session, with remaining speakers allocated 15 minute slots. The structure of symposia is flexible, and can include time for panel discussions if suited to the topic, at the discretion of the symposium organisers.

If you would like to propose a symposium at the PAOC, please submit the following information one via this Google form

  • The proposed title of the symposium
  • Name, address and email of Proposers
  • Name of proposed keynote speaker plus provisional talk title
  • Names of (at least) FIVE additional speakers already approached to participate and their potential topics

The deadline for submissions is 31st August 2015.
