The Wisconsin Society for Ornithology is pleased to announce its 73rd annual 
convention and 2012 meeting to be held in Middleton on May 10-13, 2012. This 
four-day gathering will include topical oral sessions; a poster session; a 
banquet with speaker; and field trips to significant birding areas. 
Reflecting the organization's wide-ranging membership base, the convention 
will feature two themes: "Birding in Madison and South Central Wisconsin" 
and "Soaring Against the Winds" - helping birders focus on the challenge of 
doing good conservation at a time of public disengagement and fiscal 

The convention will be held in partnership with the Madison Audubon Society 
at the Holy Wisdom Monastery, 4200 County Highway M, Middleton.

Call for Presentations -- See the complete announcement online at 

The WSO Board of Directors recently committed itself to seeking greater 
participation in its endeavors by members of the academic community at both 
the faculty and student level; to that end we are reinstituting its call for 
academic presentations at its annual conventions. Paper and poster sessions 
will be held on Saturday May 12. We particularly encourage graduate and 
undergraduate students to submit abstracts for both oral and poster 
presentations. Students accepted as presenters will receive complimentary 
convention registration, which includes Saturday's luncheon.

Deadline for submitting proposals for paper sessions and posters is Dec. 31, 
2011. Acceptances will be announced by Jan. 20, 2012.
