Welcome to the Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference Call for Abstracts. On behalf of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources we invite you to submit your presentation abstract for the 2022 Annual Conference!

We recognize that the impact of COVID-19 is still being felt across our region on our state resources and public health, and we realize this is a challenging time for everyone. Since we cant predict the wider impact for the future, we plan to run the conference in person as scheduled and will adapt conference deadlines and policies as necessary. Well continue to provide updates on our plans for a successful event. At this time, we are moving ahead with planning the technical content of the conference and encourage you to submit an abstract via the online form.
IMPORTANT DATES:
  • Call for Submissions for Organized Symposia: Now Closed; See Symposia Overviews.
  • Call for Workshops and Related Meetings: Now Open; Deadline: October 22
  • Call for Abstracts (individual speakers within a symposium, general oral, posters): Now Open; Deadline: October 22
  • Notifications of acceptance will be sent by end of October, and the schedule will be posted online by mid-November.
  • Conference deadlines and policies will be adjusted as needed due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.
ABOUT THE SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM:
The scientific program will consist of three types of sessions:
  1. Organized Symposia - A series of integrated presentations that address aspects of a single topic or theme. The structure of symposia will generally follow the timing of the regular schedule of technical sessions so that attendees can easily move from one to the other with minimal disruption to presenters and to keep concurrent sessions synchronized. However, symposium organizers will have discretion in the overall symposium format and timing of talks. Note: all individual speakers within a symposium must use the online Call for Abstracts form to submit their presentation.

  2. Contributed Oral Presentations Individual oral presentations that are grouped into sessions by conference organizers.
    1. General Track Sessions will include 20-minute presentations that will be organized within the following Program Tracks: Fisheries; Wildlife; Human Dimensions.
    2. Lightning Session will include 5-minute presentations and will be organized by topic area.

  3. Poster Presentations 44"x44" printed poster showcased as part of the Poster Session & Reception scheduled for Monday, February 14th from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
* The Call for Abstracts is now open! Anyone interested in submitting an abstract for the conference should complete the online form by Friday, October 22, 2021 at 11:59 PM (CT).

*Submit your abstract for either an individual presentation with an organized symposium, for a general contributed oral presentation, or a poster.

* Please include all of the requested information and use the specified format to ensure that the program committee receives the details necessary to evaluate your submission. The online form will prompt you for the following: Presentation Title, Track, Authors, Abstract (limited to 300 words) and Tags.

*Oral presentation authors have the option of indicating interest in an Organized Symposium, either as an invited speaker, or if you want your talk to be considered for inclusion in a particular symposium. Overviews of the accepted symposia are posted to the conference website for reference.

* Contributed Oral and Poster presentations will be grouped with similar presentations to form thematic sessions. The topics and tags you select are used to create these groupings. Track options include: Wildlife, Fisheries, and Human Dimensions/Outreach/Public Engagement.

* Please submit an abstract only if you plan to attend the meeting. All presenters, whether presenting in a symposium, general contributed session, or poster session, must be registered for the conference on the day of their scheduled presentation.
