The IZW organises regularly international conferences where scientists from all over Europe and elsewhere meet and present the latest research developments in wildlife behaviour, ecology, evolution, genetics and medicine within an interdisciplinary context. In particular, the IZW runs three series of large European congresses, the International Berlin Bat Meeting, the International Conference on Behaviour, Physiology and Genetics of Wildlife and the Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference (previous title: International Conference on Diseases of Zoo and Wild Animals). All three series aim to advance the purpose of conservation and conservation medicine for threatened wildlife species, run a forum where zoo and wildlife veterinarians, behavioural ecologists and physiologists and conservation area representatives and zoo curators can meet, and provide an opportunity to strengthen the ties between scientists from Western Europe with those from Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to these three series of conferences, the IZW also organises special one-off events.
