The International Deer Biology Congress (IDBC) aims at uniting professionals interested in deer biology and management to provide a forum to discuss common problems, and share knowledge and experiences. Some of the major topics covered include general deer biology and ecology, evolution, genetics, management, in-situ and ex-situ conservation, veterinary aspects, antler biology, and antler and venison production. The IDBC allows new relationships to be formed and hopefully sparks new endeavors in cervid research, conservation, management and production.
Symposia comprise a series of presentations that address aspects of a single topic. They will be 90 minutes in length, including 5 minutes for introductory remarks and 5 minutes for questions following each talk.
