Ornithological Congress

The Ornithological Congress is an annual meeting of the world’s major scientific societies, bringing together ornithologists from all parts of the world. This event is a key opportunity for scientists to discuss new research, learn about and share ideas with colleagues, and meet with students interested in becoming ornithologists.

The scientific program is a highlight of the conference and features oral presentations in symposia, general sessions, and poster sessions with live in-depth discussions. The scientific program includes talks on topics spanning all areas of ornithology, from the basic biology of birds to the conservation issues facing them today.

In addition to the scientific program, the congress also features many social events and networking opportunities. These include an evening reception on the River, game drives along the Zambezi, a walk through the Chamabonda Vlei, and a trip to see the spectacular Victoria Falls!

It is also the place to connect with birders from around the world. The congress is held in conjunction with an international birding festival, so delegates can participate in a range of cross-over activities such as bird yoga, nature tours, and bird-friendly coffee. The festival also includes film screenings and a gallery of artwork.

Among the most notable ornithological conferences is the North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC). NAOC occurs every four years and is one of the largest ornithological meetings in the world, drawing speakers from all over the Western Hemisphere.

With more than 300 abstract submissions, a record number of tracks, and educational sessions, the NAOC scientific program is an exceptional example of what a successful scientific conference can achieve. The NAOC scientific program included 211 oral presentations in 22 symposia, 274 oral presentations in general sessions, 80 tantalizing ‘lightning’ talks on various topics, and 330 poster presentations, all presented live with interactive Q&A sessions.

A series of workshops and roundtables were also offered in the scientific programme. These focused on various important conservation issues and helped to build relationships between different communities of ornithologists.

In addition, the NAOC included a number of student-focused workshops and a poster session for undergraduate researchers. These were held in partnership with several universities, and are a great way to gain experience in presenting scientific research in a professional environment.

Another way to get involved in ornithology is to become a member of the relevant scientific society and regularly browse its online journal and publications. This will help to improve your skills in reading and writing scientific papers, as well as give you access to the latest field-based research and other career-building opportunities.

The Ornithological Congress is the largest scientific society meeting of its kind in the world, attracting over 2000 ornithologists from all over the world. It is held in a variety of locations each year, and is a great way to meet ornithologists and learn about their research.

The Ornithological Congress is held in the beautiful city of Evora, Portugal. The congress was an opportunity to share the latest developments in ornithology with the wider academic community and also a chance to network with the local avicultural community.
