CCF Summer Symposium 2017: Call for Speakers
Connecting the Cambridge Conservation Hub: connect locally, nationally and globally
David Attenborough Building, New Museum Site, Pembroke Street, Cambridge CB2 3QY (Large Seminar Room 1.25)
We would like to invite you or your organisation to give a talk or present a poster at this year’s Cambridge Conservation Forum Summer symposium, which will be on the subject of Connectivity Conservation.
The two-day meeting is divided into 3 sessions and a poster opportunity as follows:
Session 1 Approaches to connectivity research
Session 2 Assessing and monitoring connectivity
Session 3 Implementation of connectivity conservation: challenges, policies, funding opportunities
On the afternoon of the 19th we will have breakout groups focusing on the identification of bottlenecks impeding the implementation of connectivity conservation, and on specific actions and strategies that can be pursued to overcome these challenges.
· Please submit your proposals for talks (title and a brief summary, up to 100 words) and which session you would like to be in by the 5th of June.
· We might be able to offer videoconference facilities for presenters from outside Cambridge (TBC).
· We have 7 slots of 20 minutes for each session and space for some 20 posters.
We will host a wine reception on the 19th, which will also be a good opportunity to network and generally socialise.
A booking fee is still to be decided but we hope to keep it at a minimum thanks to some funding provided by IUCN’s Connectivity Conservation Specialist Group.
