#BOU18TC | Programme

20 – 21 November 2018

 
#BOU18TC is the our second general ornithology Twitter conference. Ecology appears to continue to lead on this format with now four seabird conferences (#WSTC4 being the latest) and two @Biotweeps events (#BTcon18).

You can follow the whole conference via Twitter using the #BOU18TC – you don’t even have to have a Twitter account, but you will need an account if you want to ask any questions of any of our presenters.

If you wish to engage with #BOU18TC, e.g. ask a presenter a question, then please read these simple guidelines before you tweet using the #BOU18TC hashtag. Thank you.
