Call for Abstracts – Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Online Research Symposium


Species360 is excited to announce our first-ever online Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Research Symposium on 14 August 2024. This online gathering will showcase the latest research utilizing data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS). We invite researchers to submit abstracts to be considered for a presentation slot at the event.

The Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Research Symposium will be a two-hour online event and will provide an opportunity for researchers and professionals from the zoo, aquarium and conservation community to present and discuss their findings and results derived from the utilization of ZIMS data. This initiative is designed to foster a collaborative and insightful session for knowledge sharing while demonstrating the remarkable capabilities and impact of data-driven research.

Call for abstracts

Abstract submission instructions: We are seeking research projects that are using ZIMS data as part of the main data resource within the data analysis. This could be, but is not limited to, standardized data obtained from the Species360 Insights programme, institutional data, or processed data acquired through the Species360 Research Request process.

Due to the online format of the symposium, we will only be accepting oral presentations. Each presentation should have a duration of 15 minutes, and provide a focused and engaging overview of the research. The submitted abstracts should have a maximum word count of 250 words.

Abstracts can be submitted through the following link:

Deadline for submission: 3 June 2024

Review process: To ensure a high standard of quality and relevance, all submitted abstracts will undergo an anonymous review process. This process will be carried out by the Species360 Science team, who will select the most compelling and relevant presentations for the webinar.

Stay tuned as we will announce registration details at a later date.
