Call for Symposia Proposals
Symposia — Deadline to submit: Monday, July 17, 2017
Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal! The deadline has passed. We received a number of exciting submissions and are in the process of reviewing.

An Organized Symposium is a series of integrated presentations that address aspects of a single topic or theme. Symposia are the scientific centerpiece of the meeting and will run concurrently with other technical sessions. Symposia topics related to the conference theme are highly encouraged, as well as addressing aspects of fish and wildlife ecology, management, conservation, or wildlife disease. A symposium can consist of invited speakers only or be open to accepting presentations from the general call for abstracts (which will open later this summer). The Program Committee will coordinate with all symposium organizers to help finalize the schedule.

Responsibilities of Symposia Organizers
Organizers are responsible for coordinating with the Program Committee, planning their sessions, selecting presenters, moderating their sessions, and meeting all deadlines. Midwest Fish & Wildlife does not pay registration fees, travel expenses, or honoraria for symposium organizers or presenters. All organizers and invited speakers must register for the conference.
SUBMISSION EVALUATION & NOTIFICATION:
Proposals will be evaluated on timeliness of the subject, importance to the profession and/or contribution to science, and the overall quality of the written proposal. Applicants will be notified whether their proposal has been accepted by the end of July 2017. Once the symposium is accepted, each invited speaker will be required to submit an abstract following the procedure for regular abstracts (which will be due mid- September 2017). We will accept symposium proposals that include unfilled presentation slots. These slots will be filled with relevant presentations from the pool of regular submissions. The Program Committee will consult with the symposium organizer to identify appropriate talks. All presenters will need to register and pay for the conference.
