The International Ornithological Congress is being held August 15th – 20th 2022 in Durban South Africa. With 45 state of the art symposia, over 500 “live” talk slots, 34 round table discussions, unlimited virtual posters, and 9 plenaries, over four and a half days. All scientifically valid submissions will be included in the virtual program as pre-recorded oral presentations, with the best, early submitted presentations being chosen for in person “live” talks for the 4½ days of the physical conference. Attendance can be in person or virtual, and all contributions will be available, anytime, as pre-recorded podcasts so every presentation can be seen regardless of timetabling or location. The entire virtual program of presentation podcasts will then form the conference proceedings. There are day and half day birding excursions, early morning small group birding with local guides each day and opportunities to combine the conference with wider birding and safari opportunities in Southern Africa.
