This ninth conference of the EOU follows successful events in Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Latvia. The EOU conference has established itself as one of the largest meetings of ornithologists in the world.

Accepted symposia will cover climate change, morphology, evolution, bird collisions, pesticides, ethno-ornithology, habitat management, hybridization, predation risk, migration flyways, migration strategies, population dynamics.
