Call for Abstract Papers


Presentations and Posters are being solicited for the 13th North American Bird Strike Conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada 12 - 15 September 2011. We invite you to submit an abstract to deliver an oral or poster presentation at the Conference. Selection criteria focuses on the quality of work and/or research related to biological, engineering, management or policy issues related to wildlife hazards to aircraft and airports. Presentations should focus on mitigating the risk of wildlife strikes.

While we continue to welcome our regular presenters, those segments of the air industry affected or involved in wildlife strike issues that have not typically presented at previous Bird Strike Conferences are particularly encouraged to present. Topics that have not been previously presented will be given priority consideration.

All accepted presentation abstracts are published in the On-site Conference Program as well as being posted on the Association web-site ( A limited number of poster presentations will also be available for display during the Conference. Preliminary findings or works in progress should be submitted as poster presentations rather than oral presentations.


The Conference Program Committee will review abstracts and set program content accordingly.
