You are invited to submit titles and abstracts for oral presentations, speed talks, and posters at the 2022 Conference of The Alberta Chapter of The Wildlife Society. Presentations on all aspects of wildlife are welcome including ecology, management, research, monitoring, species biology, genetics, and new techniques.
The four types of presentations offered are:
- Traditional oral presentations – 12 minutes in length + 3 minutes for questions. Abstracts will be grouped into common themes and placed into concurrent sessions.
- Pre-recorded presentations (12 minutes) with discussion (1 hour) – Abstracts will be grouped into common themes. Presentation recordings will be shared through the conference platform 2 weeks prior to the conference. At the conference, a one hour Q&A with all authors from a theme will engage conference attendees in broader discussion.
- Speed talks – 4 minutes in length. Speed talks will be delivered in person at the conference and added to concurrent sessions.
- Poster – A poster session will be hosted on one day in the afternoon/evening for all conference participants.
Monetary prizes are awarded for all types of presentations, graduate posters, and undergraduate posters.

We are excited to offer our legendary silent auction on the last evening of the conference. All funds raised go towards scholarships for undergraduate and graduate student members of ACTWS. We seek the assistance of members for donations of any kind – goods, services, whatever your heart desires. This auction is usually a highlight of our conference and offers great opportunities for members to connect (and compete) for great prizes.
Please contact Sarah at [email protected] to make a donation.
The ACTWS will be hosting a public talk in Camrose the evening of March 17
Details to be announced.
