Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference 2019  Header
2019 Best Booth Award Winner - Barnacle Blockers
Call for Abstracts - NOW CLOSED!
Thank you to everyone who submitted a presentation abstract for the 79th Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference. The Program Committee is reviewing proposals; submitters will be notified of acceptance by the end of October.

If you would like to make edits to your presentation details or withdraw from the program, please contact Meg Boera at meg@delaneymeetingevent.com.

Sixteen special symposia will be included as part of the technical program. Read overviews here. Presenters invited to submit an abstract as part of a symposium can access the submission site here.

The scientific program will consist of four types of sessions: Organized Symposia (a series of integrated presentations that address aspects of a single topic or theme); Contributed Oral Presentations (individual oral presentations to be assigned to a general contributed track - Fisheries, Wildlife, or Human Dimensions/Outreach/Public Engagement); Lightning Talks (a 10-minute presentation, showcasing research-in-progress, in a fast-paced format); and Poster Presentations (44"x44" printed poster showcased as part of the Trade Show & Poster Social).
Undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D. students are invited to submit a Research-in-Progress Poster for the 79th Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference.

Space is limited to 20 posters; first-come, first-serve.

Eligible posters include:
  1. Research that is in progress
  2. A proposed research project (with a focus on study design)
  3. Results from completed undergraduate research projects
  4. Student chapter research projects that may not be appropriate for the regular poster sessions (these may include a class or group research project).
The Student Research-in-Progress Poster session will be held separately from the contributed poster sessions. You should NOT submit the same abstract for the Student Research-in-Progress Poster session if you have already submitted it as a Contributed Paper or Poster abstract through the general call for presentations. This is an excellent opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions from both professionals and peers. Posters may be no larger than 4 ft. wide x 3 ft. tall.
Instructions for Submitting Abstracts:
Abstracts for The Student Research-in-Progress Poster Session should be submitted through the online conference registration link. When you register for the conference you will be prompted with a question to participate in the In-Progress Poster Session and will be asked to provide a title and brief abstract (up to 250 words.) Only one submission per primary author is allowed.

Abstract Review:
Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. You will be notified by mid-January by email regarding whether your abstract was accepted.
