Paper Submission & Speaking Opportunity
IAATE was formed, among other reasons, to provide opportunities through which bird trainers can exchange and disseminate current knowledge, research, and other information among themselves. As a speaker, you are required to submit a full write-up of your paper for publication in our conference proceedings so that everyone can benefit from the knowledge you’ve chosen to share. As a collection of the papers presented at the annual conference, the proceedings are a great way to share information among IAATE members. As a thank you, all speakers will receive a complimentary copy of the proceedings.
Poster presenters are also welcome (but not required) to submit a write-up for the proceedings, and would then also receive a complimentary copy.
IAATE requires publication rights to accepted papers, not only for inclusion in the conference proceedings, but also our online Resource Center and/or our member newsletter, The Flyer.
Coordinating the schedules, itinerary and preparing materials is time sensitive and time intensive. Therefore, it is extremely important to meet the deadline for full paper submission. You will be contacted via email as a reminder of upcoming deadlines. Please be responsive, communication is important. If you have any questions that have not been answered here, or need more explanation, you can contact the Vice President at any time and every effort will be made to address your needs.
