9th ARRCN Symposium 2015 in Chumphon, Thailand

It is an honor to invite you for the 9th ARRCN Symposium 2015 in Chumphon and its exciting concurrent events in Thailand.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “Global Raptor Migration – Better Monitoring for Conservation” The mission of ARRCN is the exchange of information among its members, to coordinate research on both resident and migratory species, and through training, education and improved public awareness to promote the conservation of raptors.

The 9th ARRCN Symposium 2015 will be held during 21st–25th October 2015 at the Novotel Hotel, Chumphon, Thailand, one of the most favored travel destinations in Asia.

I am confident that Thailand’s many attractions, friendly people, high quality facilities and accommodation, the truly spectacular and diverse scientific programs developed by the ARRCN and its partners, and the chance to visit Khao Dinsor, the Hawk Mountain of Asia, will provide you with a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

We invite abstracts for Oral and Poster Presentations and short video films, based on original research on diurnal (Accipitriformes, Falconiformes) and nocturnal (Strigiformes) raptors from Asia, focused on the following topics: Conservation Biology, Ecology, Ethno-ornithology, Biogeography, Diversity, Migration, Taxonomy and molecular phylogeny, Pesticides, Lead poisoning and other threats, Rescue and rehabilitation, Bio-acoustics, Modelling & Bio-statistics, Conservation education, Status surveys, Captive breeding and husbandry, Species Protection, others.
