Dear friends,

We are happy to announce that the Fifth International Orca Symposium will
take place in Tarifa (Strait of Gibraltar, Spain), between the *28
September - 2 October 2020*.

All killer whale researchers are invited to the event. The meeting will be
organized by CIRCE, and follows a similar format to the previous symposium
held in 2002 by CEBC-CNRS in Chizé (France). On the web page www.orca.world
you can find out more information about this event.

The objective of the symposium is to gather researchers from all over the
world for a week in Tarifa, to present the latest advances in killer whale
research. All participants are invited to present one or more posters and
an oral presentation. As many posters you want and an oral presentation per
participant will be accepted, but we need a submissions process to organize
the sessions by the 1st of July 2020. Submission instructions are available
on the website (www.orca.world).

The first 2.5 days will be reserved for oral presentations and plenary
sessions. The last 2 days will be reserved for workshops. The goal of the
symposium is to have ample opportunity for discussion, and interaction
among researchers.

A broad social and cultural parallel agenda will be organized, in the same
spirit as previous symposiums, so do not hesitate to come accompanied if
you wish.

Alongside 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 Tarifa, a campaign of
micro-volunteers in schools in Algeciras, Barbate and Tarifa, a video
exhibition, and talks open to the general public.

Sorry for cross-posting.
