Hi All,

CAMPOUT, Bendigo, Victoria October 2005 

"Challenges for Bird Conservation in the 21st Century: Birds in a 
Changing Environment"

Birds Australia Victoria invite spoken and poster presentations for a 2-
day scientific congress at La Trobe University, Bendigo, on Sat/Sun 1-2 
October 2005.You are invited to submit contributions relating to any 
aspect of the Congress theme.  The location of the Congress 
particularly lends itself to presentations relating to box and ironbark 
forests and woodlands, mallee ecosystems, grasslands, and the Murray 
River system and wetlands. The program committee have tentatively 
proposed sessions based around:
- birds and water            
- changes to forest, woodland and mallee landscapes            
- restoration, revegetation and recovery            
- programs and strategies for responding to landscape change            
- student research 

Spoken papers

Presentation timeslots generally will be for 15 minutes. Time for 
questions and discussion will be allocated after groups of speakers 
have presented.  Presentations by research students are particularly 
welcome.  Please send an abstract of your presentation to the program 
committee chair (see below) by 1 July 2005. Abstracts should include a 
title, author(s) names, affiliation(s) and address, and a maximum 200 
word summary of the paper.  Give attention to including objectives and 
major outcomes in your abstract. Where possible, please submit 
abstracts by email. The program of spoken presentations will be 
prepared by August and speakers then will be notified of their place 
and instructions for preparing the presentation. We aim to include as 
many papers as possible, but if there is not room for your paper you 
are welcome to submit it as a poster.
