Call for Papers

Members of the AOU and other ornithologists are invited to contribute oral and poster presentations to the scientific session. To apply for a place on the program, follow instructions for online submission; abstracts will not be accepted by fax or e-mail. DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS BY THE SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM COMMITTEE IS 1 MAY 2011. Proposals for oral presentations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the schedule is full. The Scientific Program Committee will select and organize papers in appropriate sessions based on scientific content of the abstract. Abstracts should summarize findings, not methods. Indicate preference for either lecture or poster presentation. If all paper sessions are filled, it may be necessary to accept for poster presentation some abstracts submitted for oral presentation. Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes including time for questions and technical difficulties; the Program Committee encourages speakers to aim for 12 minute presentations. Preliminary findings or works in progress should be submitted as poster presentations rather than oral presentations.
