Dear friends.

This mail is just an invitation to the next world  killer whales
symposium/conference, that will take place in Tarifa (Strait of Gibraltar,
Spain), in April 2020. The meeting will take place in Tarifa between the
13th and 18th April 2020 in Tarifa, Strait of Gibraltar. All researchers on
killer whales are invited to the event. The meeting will be organised by
CIRCE, and follows the symposium that was held previously by the CEBC-CNRS
in Chizé (France) in 2002. In the web page www.orca.world you can read all
the information about.

The objective of the meeting will be to gather all the researchers of the
world for a week in Tarifa, to present the latest advances on killer whales
research. All the participants are invited to  present one or more posters
(Send us the abstract to organise the poster sessions!! You can bring as
many posters as you want, but almost one is needed to participate in the
meeting) or an oral presentation (abstract submission needed to organise
the program).

The first 2.5 days will be reserved for oral presentations and plenary
sessions. The last 2 days will be reserved for workshops, which will be
defined throughout the plenary sessions. The symposium will leave broad
scope for discussion, and interaction among researchers.

A broad social and cultural parallel agenda will be organized, as well so
do not hesitate to come accompanied if you wish. The spirit of the meeting
will be the same as in previous meetings. The more socialization the better.

Accompanying the symposium, CIRCE will take the opportunity to carry out
parallel training activities in the Campo de Gibraltar, which will consist
of an exhibition of photographs on orcas in the premises of Tarifa, a
campaign of micro-volunteers in schools in Algeciras, Barbate and Tarifa,
video exposition, and talks open to the general public.

Sorry for Cross posting.
