IOCongress 2022: Submission for contributions

Contributions for inclusion in the IOCongressTM 2022 conference can now be submitted!  

Ornithological conferences are important as they stimulate learning, interactions and outcomes that benefit bird species and their habitats. The IOCongress™ 2022 in Durban, South Africa, promises to deliver, with over 40 symposia on an extensive range of topics. 

The IOCongress™2022 will be a hybrid of virtual and physical attendance and aims to be inclusive, especially for young ornithologists and those from the Global South. Another reason ornithologists often travel to conferences is to watch birds. So, we are trying to make birding an important part of the IOCongress™ 2022 and have involved BirdLife SA and local bird guides to be available for delegates wishing to experience some of the amazing birding South Africa has to offer. The conference will start with a half-day of birding trips, and then early each morning, there will be optional birding opportunities in and around Durban. There will also be opportunities to go on pre-and post-conference tours. On the Saturday after the conference, there will be a pelagic trip. Details of all these will be on the website. Some of our young birders are also sharing birding information and photographs on the website and in the mailers, so be sure to look out for them to help brush up your ID skills beforehand. We are also hoping to have some banding sessions so people can see some birds in the hand and up close. We look forward to welcoming you at IOCongress™2022 and sharing our passion for our birds.
