All Conservation Symposium delegates need to register as a user on this website. This creates a user profile with access to an individual Dashboard from which delegates can submit abstracts, track the abstract review progress, register for attendance tickets (both virtual and in-person), as well as to attend and participate in The Conservation Symposium from 31 October to 4 November 2022 (arrive during the afternoon of Sunday 30 October 2022 to attend the Opening Function; post-symposium workshop ends Saturday 5 November 2022).

Your Dashboard on The Conservation Symposium is the key interface to participate in the symposium. Once the final programme is available (mid-September 2022), you will be able to schedule which sessions to attend and connect with other delegates.
