The 2019 AOS conference will host a suite of thematic workshops and round tables that offer timely and novel information on an array of topics. These include professional development and diversity training, and exciting new advances in ornithological research, management, education, and conservation. The workshops emphasize the theme of the conference, Celebrating Connections: Birds without Borders.

Workshops are hands-on, professional development sessions, either half-day or full day, where participants gain new skills and knowledge in a hands-on and interactive learning environment. All take place at the Egan Conference Center.

Round tables are meetings that provide opportunities for individuals interested in a specific topic to meet in a programmed time to converse on current issues, discuss future directions, or generate planning documents. Round tables are not intended to include formal presentations. Round table organizers are expected to pay for full conference registration and are responsible for their own travel expenses.
