The Duck Specialist Group, DSG, is pleased to announce that two prizes will be presented to the best students during the symposium. The DSG student prize will be presented to the best student presentation, based on evaluation of the abstracts (clearly indicate you are a student on your abstract!) and the presentations during the conference.
In addition, thanks to the generous contribution of Tour du Valat, a second prize will be presented jointly by Tour du Valat and the DSG to the best presentation by a student from a Mediterranean country (i.e. whose affiliation is in a country bordering the Mediterranean Sea).
Prizes will be presented to the students during the conference banquet on 10 April.
There has been some technical problems in the registration form during 15-19 Nov. If you have registered during this period, could you please do it again. In case of problems, please contact the organizing committee. Thank you!
We have now added three accommodation options that are situated close to the conference venue. When booking your accommodation remember to use reference ”European Duck Symposium” to get cheaper price. List of the options is found from here.
You can now start to submit abstracts and register to the next Pan-European Duck Symposium! The deadline for abstract submission is 30 November 2014.

Note also that we have updated information concerning the plenary speakers (Robert Clark, David Koons and Markus Öst) and the program of the symposium. There will be for instance a workshop dealing with the Common Pochard.
