Making science work for development

Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS) Series

27 - 29 March

The Student Conference on Conservation Science series in Cambridge, Australia, Beijing, Bangalore, New York and Hungary is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. SCCS helps young conservation scientists gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts that will be valuable for their future careers. Over the past 17 years, SCCS Cambridge has hosted over 2,800 delegates from 128 countries worldwide.

The nineteenth conference in the Cambridge series will be held from 27 - 29 March 2018, in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, UK. Deadline for applications: Friday 20 October 2017 at 10:00 AM GMT.

The conference is designed for young conservation researchers from biological, environmental and geography departments of universities as well as conservation and resource management agencies. 

Each day the programme starts with a plenary lecture from a leading conservation scientist, and is followed by around 10 student talks. About 100 students also present their work at the three poster sessions.
