 ABOUT

Following upon the great success of the 5th International Swift Conference held in 2018 in Tel Aviv, we are pleased to invite you to join us in 2022 Segovia to celebrate the 6th International Swift Conference, the first one to be held in the Iberian Peninsula.
 
Segovia is a small city in the centre of Spain with a great cultural and architectural heritage, known worldwide for its famous ancient aqueduct. In addition, it has an important natural heritage, particularly in birds and especially in Swifts, with a major colony breeding in the aqueduct. 
 
In recent years the city has made a breakthrough in ways to reconcile its architectural and natural heritage, enabling the wildlife to continue living side by side with the human inhabitants.
 
Segovia’s proximity to the capital of Spain, Madrid, ensures easy communicaion by public transport. Segovia also has a wide choice of hotels and restaurants, permitting attendees to enjoy this beautiul city to the fullest extent.
 
The Conference will take place on May 2022. As with the previous conferences, we are asking for presentations and lectures on topics including the biology of Swifts, migration and geolocation technology, aerodynamics, radar studies, rehabilitation, conservation measures and promotion, including the presentation of specific projects, also including culture and education, artworks, and photography. Contributions based on personal experiences as well as scientific research are welcome, and there will be an opportunity to display artworks, posters and materials relating to project work.

We have too programmed some exclusive complementary activities for congress attendees.
