Abstract submission

We have reserved 10-minute time slots for short oral presentations. The presentations can either be given live (online) or as a recorded presentation. We also offer the opportunity to present your work on a poster, which can be summarised in a pre-recorded 3-minute presentation (optional).

In particular, we aim to gather information from papers and studies that have used different techniques to study bat movements, such as ringing, acoustic surveys, VHF tracking, MOTUS tracking, GPS tracking and others. We invite you to contribute to this project with your scientific knowledge on bat movements.

In case you would like to present your work at the symposium, please submit your abstract by the 31st October 2022. Please note that presentation slots are limited and will be assigned on a competitive basis.

Deadline for abstract submission: 31st October 2022, midnight CET
