WLC5 Online Registration


ATTENTION: The dealine for workshop proposals has been extended to April 1, 2106.

Participants interested in organizing a workshop should contact Patrick Kelly (pkelly@csustan.eduno later than April 1, 2016.

Workshops should aim at pursuing specific tasks (e.g. to assist in elaborating a conservation action plan for a particular species or for regional populations, to establish a list of issues of research needs for a particular species, to evaluate technologies and methods for certain research questions), rather than represent extended paper sessions on certain topics.

Workshops may encompass both introductory/impulse papers and comprehensive discussions. Abstracts indicating aims and planned structure of workshops should be submitted in a Word Document to Patrick Kelly. Ideally, workshops might result in a publication of a paper, a signed statement, etc. (e.g. on the IUCN, LSG or WLS) authored by all participants of the respective workshop.

Workshops currently under consideration include but are not limited to Lagomorph phylogeography and molecular systematics, Lagomorph conservation genetics, use of technology in Lagomorph field research, and Lagomorph population trends in the United States.


ATTENTION: The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to April 1, 2016.

Oral and poster presentations on all topics in lagomorph biology are welcome for the meeting. Deadline for abstract submission is April 1, 2016. Formal notification of acceptance of the contributions will be sent out as soon as possible after receipt. Please note that the meeting language will be English only.

Oral presentations will be scheduled for 12 minutes plus 3 minute discussion. This timing must not be exceeded. Projection equipment for Powerpoint, Keynote, or PDF presentations will be available.
