20th EBCC conference - travel grants available
20th conference of the European Bird Census Council (EBCC): Bird Numbers 2016 ’Birds in a changing world’.
EBCC conferences are held every three years, bringing together people involved in bird monitoring, research and conservation across Europe and beyond. Topics are varied, ranging from the results of new common bird monitoring programs, waterbird monitoring and atlases, studies of causes of population change, demography or distribution, studies of the effectiveness of conservation action and the impact of government policies, new technologies, methods or analytical techniques, the use of birds as indicators, and the development of citizen science projects.
The conference will be held from 5 to 9 September 2016 in Halle (Saale) in the center of Germany. The venue is the campus of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. Mid-conference excursions are planned to various locations in the region.
Travel grants may be awarded for participants coming from countries with relatively lower income (including African countries). All relevant information could be found on the conference website http://www.birdnumbers2016.de/
