Second Call for Papers

This is the second call for papers, poster presentations, and panel discussions related to the conference theme Let’s Partner: Moving Forward Together or to fish and wildlife information management in general. Use our online form to submit your abstract. Deadline for submission of all papers (with speaker biography) has been extended to Friday, September 7, 2018.

OFWIM anticipates a limited number of remote access seats will be available, so think about joining us virtually and giving a presentation from your office.

Submit a poster presentation for the “Hacker’s Ball,” an OFWIM tradition that combines the poster session with live demonstrations of applications. Visit our Conference page for more information about the 2018 event.
