The meeting will have the theme of ‘Understanding animal movement in human-altered landscapes‘. We welcome contributed talks and posters and will have discussions on general issues with movement ecology and the effects of anthropogenic disturbance.

Details of two further keynote speakers to be announced shortly.

Talks and posters

We will have slots for talks and space for posters at the meeting. Talks will be 12 minutes long. There may not be enough talk slots for everyone, so priority will be given to early career researchers. Please include a title and short abstract when you register so we have an idea of the balance of topics (you can change it later). Students will also be given the option to put themselves forward for a student plenary talk (20 minutes).

To guarantee consideration for a contributed talk please register and submit your abstract before the 25th July 2022We will contact attendees after this to confirm talk slots.
