We look forward to seeing you in Boise for a week packed with raptor research and networking opportunities to build and strengthen your relationships with colleagues from around the globe! The main conference kicks off with an icebreaker social at Boise Centre on the evening of Saturday October 9th. The next three days are packed with scientific sessions and socials for you to catch-up with long-time colleagues and forge new collaborations.
Conference registration prices are all-inclusive, meaning that every registrant gets a ticket to all of the main conference events. Registration for students and early professionals are subsidized, so be sure to see which registration type is best suited to your career stage. Students who graduated in 2020 are still eligible for the student registration rate and student awards in 2021.
