Student Conference on Conservation Science, Bangalore, India

The deadline for submitting abstracts to the Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS) – Bangalore, has been extended from 3 March to 10 March 2010.

As a sister conference to SCCS-Cambridge, SCCS-Bangalore brings together young researchers in conservation science to facilitate interaction, encourage exchange of research ideas and methods, and help build contacts and capacity. The dates for the conference are 16-18 June 2010.

Applications are invited from early-stage researchers to present their research at the conference, which will be attended by students from all over South and South-east Asia.

In addition to student talks, there will be four plenary lectures by eminent conservation scientists, as well as panel discussions and capacity-building workshops.

Confirmed plenary speakers include Professor Rhys Green (University of Cambridge), Dr Harini Nagendra (ATREE, Bangalore and Indiana University, USA), and Professor Ruth DeFries (Columbia University, USA).

Panel discussions will be on conservation within versus outside protected areas; and whether conservation efforts should be targetted at species, ecosystems, or services.

Workshops will be on topics like Study design in conservation research; Using genetic techniques for conservation; Where and how to apply for funds for conservation research; How to communicate your work in talks, posters and papers; and How to find a job in conservation.
