We have received numerous high-quality papers for the 4th International Berlin Bat Meeting: Movement Ecology of Bats (13-15 March 2015) in Berlin, Germany. The chairpersons of the corresponding sessions did a wonderful job in picking a high-quality selection of presentations. We apologize sincerely that we were not able to consider all suggested oral presentations. Please find the program of our conference in the attached file.
Please note, you may still register for the conference in case you haven’t done so. Please do so quickly because space is limited in the lecture hall.
We have reserved a contingent of rooms in the Best Western Hotel Steglitz (http://www.si-hotel.com/?lang=en). In case you would like to make your hotel booking there, please mention the code “Bats 2015”. We will organize a cost-free bus shuttle that will bring participants each morning from this hotel to the conference venue and each late afternoon back to the hotel.
Please feel free to distribute this call and the program to anyone you think might be interested in participating. If you have any questions, please contact us at 4thIBBM2015@izw-berlin.de or check the web pages www.izw-berlin.de (à ‘conference’, à ‘International Berlin Bat Meeting’) or www.batlab.de.
We thank the German National Science Foundation (DFG) and EUROBATS for contributing financially to this conference. We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin in March,
Christian C. Voigt, Stephanie Kramer-Schadt and the batlab teamco
