Event Description Venue and Accommodation
We will kick of the chapter meeting on May 4 by joining the European Pond Conservation Network (EPCN)'s 7th European Pond Conservation Network Workshop + LIFE CHARCOS Seminar: Ponds in a Changing World for field trips and a conference dinner! The EPCN conference will also be held at the University of Algarve in Faro, Portugal, on May 1 - 4, 2017.
We strongly encourage attending both meetings, the entire week of May 1 - 6, 2017. By joining with EPCN, we hope to enhance collaboration in wetland restoration, conservation and other land-use science, as well as find solutions for reoccurring problems. We want to encourage the discussion of new wetland conservation, restoration and management research. To learn more about EPCN's Ponds in a Changing World workshop, please visit the 7th EPCN+LIFE CHARCOS Seminar website.
If interested in registering for both the SWS Europe Chapter Meeting and the 7th European Pond Conservation Network Workshop + LIFE CHARCOS Seminar, please register on the EPCN registration site.
We encourage attendees to become members of the Society of Wetland Scientists before registering for conference, if they have not already joined. By joining SWS, attendees will not only receive a reduced registration fee to the Europe Chapter Meeting, but also gain all of the great benefits that SWS has to offer!

The registration fee covers the costs of the field trips, lunches and conference dinner. Please note: due to the fact that the Society of Wetland Scientists is an international society, registration will be collected in U.S. dollars and there will be a conversion fee.
(Please note: the registration fees are the same for early and regular registration since there was no early registration period.)
