Turning Data Into Knowledge: data collection to conservation implementation.

  • General Session

This call is for papers, poster presentations, and panel discussions related to the conference theme or
to fish and wildlife information management in general.

Individual papers should be 15 minutes in length and will allow an additional 5 minutes for questions and
discussion. If you have an idea for a Panel Discussion, please contact Kristin Rogers. This year OFWIM will
offer a limited number of remote access seats for both viewers/virtual presenters who cannot travel to the
conference location, so think about joining us virtually and giving a paper from your office!

Submit a poster presentation for the “Hacker’s Ball,” an OFWIM tradition that combines the poster session with
live demonstrations of applications.

Deadline for submission of all abstracts (with speaker biography) is Monday August 1, 2015.
