Welcome Message

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I extend to you an invitation to join us for the first Biotweeps Twitter Conference, to be held June 28-30, 2017 via the hashtag #BTCon17.

This first conference takes inspiration from the World Seabird Twitter Conference, a successful project now in its third year. I thank the organisers of that conference for their support of our own ambitions. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the other member of the #BTCon17 organising committee, Dr. Katherine James @KJames_IntBio for her efforts in making this conference a reality.

#BTCon17 will provide an excellent forum for you to talk about your latest research, practise your science communication skills, and engage with a diverse and interested audience. Biotweeps has fostered friendships, networking opportunities, and collaborations in the past, and we hope that the conference is no different.

We hope you will join us for a few days of fascinating science and discussion.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anthony Caravaggi (@thonoir)
