The second day of the conference will be a workshop, run with a smaller group of people. The purpose is to strengthen the Europe-wide cooperation in the horseshoe bat’s conservation, with the intention of developing collaborative projects. The workshop language will be English.
Participation in the event is free of charge, and the on-site costs such as food, accommodation and local transportation are covered. Foreign authors, with their presentations accepted into the programme, will receive support for their international travel costs as well.
The audience of the conference will be a broad group, including bat researchers, conservationists, public administration officials, administrators and owners of roosts. Therefore, the expected format of the presentations is not necessarily scientific. The proposed contributions will be discussed between the organisers and authors, in order to cover a wide range of problems and approaches.
