Dedicated to the study and conservation of Pacific Seabirds and their environment.

Scientific Program

Get psyched for the 45th PSG Annual Meeting in Mexico!
The meeting will be in La Paz, Baja California, 21-24 February 2018.

Would you like to organize or co-organize a Special Paper Session or Symposium? Do you have suggestions for a plenary speaker?

To suggest a Plenary Speaker, please submit a name, contact information, and presentation topic.

Symposium: get those papers published!

A Symposium is a coherent set of papers designed to be published, thus everyone contributing to the Symposium also needs to prepare a paper for publication afterwards. Symposia have a synthetic overview or broad topical coverage, and typically have invited speakers to advance a particular topic (e.g., The Value of Long-term Studies: Insight & Synthesis, PSG 2017).

Please email me for a SPS/Symposium application »

Do your best to complete the form with all the names, contact info and presentation titles. Contact me if you have questions, need help, or want feedback. You will likely not have all of the Special Paper Session speakers and Symposium participants confirmed in August, and that’s okay. Once your proposal is accepted, you will need to provide me with a short description of the session or symposium for the meeting website and the scientific program and your contact information.

Sessions or symposia may be open to all members (Open) or invitation only (Invited), and this will be noted in the registration process. If your session is Open or has spots available, it will be listed in the dropdown menu and include the word “Open”. Interested presenters will need to contact you to confirm that their talk is consistent with the purpose of your session or symposium. Once confirmed, presenters will then submit their abstract to this session.

If your session features only invited speakers, it will be noted in the selection choice as “Invited”. You will invite each speaker and they will submit their abstracts during the call for abstracts. In both cases, I will work with you to confirm participation and assist with abstract submission.

Stay tuned for the First Call for Abstracts in September 2017. Please contact me if you have questions or would like help with your proposal en inglés o en español.
