Call for abstracts

Abstract submission is open until the 6th November 2020. Please use the form below to submit your abstract! Successful abstracts will be notified by the 6th December 2020. Registration and tickets for general admission will be made available in the first week of December 2020.

Who can apply: We invite all graduate and early career researchers undertaking research relevant to biodiversity at a Victorian Institution to submit an abstract. We also invite young industry professionals based in Victoria (less than 10 years experience) to submit an abstract.

Conference format: Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 travel and social-distancing restrictions, the 2021 conference will be held entirely online. Don't despair! Our online conference platform will be engaging with plenty of opportunities for networking, poster presentations and fun!

Presentation types: Will include 10 minute talks, five minute speed talks and alternative formats (e.g. poster presentations). Projects with clear results and/or outcomes will be given preference for 10 minute talks. We encourage projects without results to be submitted for five minute speed talks and poster presentations. 

The conference is deliberately broad and encourages a variety of talks across terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments, related to both local and international issues.
