Call for abstracts

The Student Conference is based around student presenters that give talks and showcase posters. Previously, we have had some unique and amazing talks and posters, and we encourage any students to showcase their work by presenting in Worcester University. It's a great chance to get conference experience, as well as to tell people about your work and get feedback from professionals.

To submit a talk or poster for consideration simply send an email to by no later than the 3rd of March 2018, with the subject 'Student Conference Presentation/Poster'. Guidelines for submitting your abstract are available to download from the conference website, here:

The Programme

The Student Conference will not only feature work by students, but also talks from invited experts, a Q&A panel with ecologists and scientists, and a range of workshops. During the conference the Worcester Mammal Group will hold a workshop on mammal identification and the Vincent Wildlife Trust (VWT) will host a workshop on the use of technology in studying mammals, pine marten in particular.

On the Saturday, the VWT will host a workshop on mammal trapping and tracking, giving attendees knowledge and practical experience with camera traps, radio collars, and much more. The Saturday event is only open to conference attendees and places are strictly limited. Email to reserve your place.
