To all bird-related academics,

As you may know, the 2nd Southern Hemisphere Ornithological Congress
(SHOC) will be held from 27 June to 2 July in Brisbane, Australia. The
program of symposia encompasses many of the most important and exciting
fields of avian ecology, biology, evolution and conservation.

This is the first large wide-ranging ornithological congress to be held in
Australasia in the past 4 years, and with the next International
Congress happening in China and not until 2002, SHOC is the only easily
accessible conference to Australasian researchers in the immediate
future.  Attending conferences is an important aspect of a student?s
professional development, and getting to know the research community
is nowadays crucial to hearing about and being considered for jobs,
postdocs, etc.

We would like to encourage supervisors of students studying birds to
suggest that they attend SHOC.  There promises to be a wide range of
researchers from academic and other instutions attending, and the program
is looking full and varied.  Students are eligible for a substantially
reduced registation rate (with a copy of a current ID and letter from their
supervisor).  Of course, academics should consider attending themselves,
and encouraging their entire research groups to do so also!

We also draw your attention to the fact that the cut-off for Early Bird
registrations is 28 February, so now is the time to act!

Further information and registration forms are available on the SHOC
website []
or from the Congress Secretariate 

On behalf of the organising committee,
