What to Consider in Proposing a Speaker / Topic
ICCB plenary talks relate to the theme of the congress (see below). Plenary speakers shape perspectives on the future of conservation; inspire the conservation community to confront shared challenges, illuminate new ideas and possibilities for biodiversity conservation with thought-provoking insights for new pathways in conservation, and more.
 
The Steering Committee will give special consideration to proposed speakers who focus on solutions to conservation challenges in Africa, use inter-disciplinary approaches to address cutting edge questions in conservation science, and are uniquely positioned to address social and racial justice in conservation and the persistence of bias and inequity in the conservation profession.
 
The Steering Committee prioritizes speakers who historically face systemic barriers to participation on account of race, gender or sexual orientation.

Scientists from around the world will present the latest in conservation research and practice at dozens of symposia at ICCB 2021. The scientific program will also features hundreds of contributed talks, poster, and speed presentations as well as dozens of workshops and short courses.
