    this came through one of my birding email groups, and I thought it may interest anybody who likes owls.....



    Dear friends studying owls all around the World, it is our great pleasure to announce that after eight years of waiting, we have fixed a date for the new World Owl Conference.

    We are happy to tell you that between 19th and 23rd October 2016 the fifth edition of World Owl Conference will take place in Italy, where it was held in 2007 the last time.

    We are now inviting you to save the date and start thinking about what kind of research you would like to present during the most rich and interesting convention about owls ever. Apart from the plenary convention session, the 5th World Owl Conference will take place in a location, Venaus, that will give you the chance to attend many side events and owl-and-nature-themed initiatives.

    It will be an event not to be missed! Soon we will give you all the technical information about travelling and overnight stay, and all the practical information about the scientific reports.

    We would like to invite you to follow us on our official website Woc 2016 Venaus Italy | World Owl Conference 2016 <http://www.woc2016.it/> and on our official facebook page.

    The deeds of this important conference will be published in an elegant volume that will be released as a supplement to an important Italian ornithology magazine.

    The convention will take extra care of anyone who will come with you: families, friends, wives, children, girlfriends. During the whole conference, special guided tours will be arranged to visit stunning Italian locations, thanks to the help of tour guides and interpreters. World owl conference for everyone!

    An owl conference in Italy is also a unique chance to visit the most beautiful country in the World!

    For information you can write to [email protected]

    Thank you for your attention, please follow us and spread the news on WOC 2016 all around the world.

    We are waiting for you in Italy!

    There is a *very* extensive private breeding centre for owls in northern Italy, so I would not be surprised if someone from there is involved.
