The World Conference on Marine Biodiversity (WCMB) has become the major focal assembly to share research outcomes, management and policy issues, and discussions on the role of biodiversity in sustaining ocean ecosystems. Arranged on a 3 - 4 year cycle, prior WCMB meetings (Valencia, Spain; Aberdeen, Scotland; Qingdao, China) have each attracted leading specialists from around the world, and catalyzed numerous sidebar sessions on marine biodiversity issues. The 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity will be held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, Québec, Canada, from May 13-16, 2018. This meeting will bring together scientists, practitioners, and policy makers to discuss and advance our understanding of the importance and current state of biodiversity in the marine environment. Through a mix of keynote sessions, contributed talks and posters, and bookable venues for focused meetings, the conference program will address marine biodiversity across a deliberately wide range of relevant sectors. Participation will be encouraged from the broadest possible range of stakeholder groups from academics to industry. ... [Information of the supplier]
The biannual North American Congress for Conservation Biology represents an important facet of SCBNA's work to foster communication among conservation scientists and practitioners in North America. This event brings together conservation professionals and students working across a wide variety of disciplines and institutions for discussion, innovation and opportunities in science. The goal of NACCB is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing new research, developments, and strategies that will inform policy changes and conservation practices to address today's conservation in North America. The 2018 conference theme is "Conservation science, policy, and practice: connecting the urban to the wild". ... [Information of the supplier]
The International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) is the leading scientific society for the study of the behaviour and welfare of confined or domesticated animals, including companion, farm, zoo and managed wild animals. The Congress provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of advances in applied animal behaviour science and animal welfare. ... [Information of the supplier]
Vancouver is delighted to welcome ornithologists from around the world on behalf of the International Ornithologists' Union to the 27th International Ornithological Congress (IOCongress2018)! Considered the oldest and most prestigious of meetings for bird scientists, the Congress occurs every four years since first being held in Vienna, Austria, in 1884. Canada has hosted only once previously, Ottawa in 1986, and Vancouver will be the first time the Congress has been on the Pacific Coast of the Americas. The Congress has broad national endorsement, including from the City of Vancouver, the province of British Columbia, Environment Canada, Simon Fraser University, Artists for Conservation, Tourism Vancouver plus an array of scientific societies and conservation organizations. Bird Studies Canada, the country’s leading science-based bird conservation organization is Co-Host. Such diverse supporters reflect the vision that wild birds are ambassadors for environmental health, and sustaining our bird heritage depends on all governments working in concert with Aboriginal Peoples, academia, artists, the interested public and non-government organizations. In honor of the occasion, the City’s annual Bird Week will coincide with the Congress in 2018, showcasing Vancouver to the world as a green, bird-friendly city. With this mounting enthusiasm, coupled with the spectacular venue (West Wing of the Vancouver Convention Centre), our aim is to make this Congress the most successful and important bird meeting yet. We believe that the prospect of over 2,000 scientists from ~100 countries flocking to Vancouver in combination with public events and exhibitions in celebration of all-things-birds will represent a game-changer for ornithological conferences. Your Host, the “IOCongress2018 Organizing Society”, is a registered non-profit, with many of the same members who made the 5th North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC-V, Vancouver, 2012) the biggest and most financially successful bird meeting staged in North America to-date. The team is excited about doing even better in 2018, with a once-in-a-lifetime scientific gathering of a scope and scale hitherto never attempted. As is custom, we will be offering pre- and post-Congress tours to Canada’s birding hot spots as well as daily bird-watching opportunities. Join us in fostering an international legacy and heralding a new era in ornithology. ... [Information of the supplier]
