Call for Presentations
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, September 17 at 11:59 p.m. EST
The Program Committee for the 79th Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference is seeking presentation proposals. Sixteen special symposia will be included as part of the technical program; some are accepting presentation proposals though the regular call for abstracts and others are by invitation only. Read overviews here.

Abstract Submission Instructions:
  • 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 (4’x4’ printed poster showcased as part of the Trade Show & Poster Social).

  • Submissions will be collected online only. Deadline to submit will be: Monday, September 17, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

  • Each submission must 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, Authors, Track, Tags/Keywords, and Abstract (limited to 300 words).

  • Track Options: Contributed Oral and Poster presentations will be grouped with similar presentations to form thematic sessions, based on selected disciplines: Fisheries, Wildlife, Human Dimensions/Outreach/Public Engagement. Oral presentation authors also 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 a particular symposium. Overviews of the accepted symposia are posted to the conference website for reference.

  • You may begin the submission process and return to your saved proposal any time up until the submission deadline. You can also login and make any modifications only until the submission deadline.

  • Please submit an abstract only if you plan to attend the meeting. Presenting authors must be registered for the conference on the day of their scheduled presentation.

  • Notifications of acceptance will be sent by mid-October, and the schedule will be posted by early November.

CALL FOR STUDENT RESEARCH-IN-PROGRESS POSTERS
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 15 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.
