WELCOME

#BOU17TC is the first ever general ornithology Twitter Conference. Our event has been inspired by the success of the three World Seabird Twitter Conferences (#WSTC, #WSTC2 and #WSTC3) and @Biotweeps’ recent #BTcon17.

Twitter conferences are becoming increasingly popular as they are both a low carbon and cost-free way for researchers from around the world to come together to share their research.

Taking part in #BOU17TC couldn’t be easier – you join in from wherever you want, accessing the event on your PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet via the Twitter website or a Twitter app using our conference tag #BOU17TC.
