Digital applications are increasingly being used in nature conservation and span a range of domains e.g. monitoring & remote sensing, digital public engagement, citizen science, crowd-sourcing & data access and connectivity.
This conference will bring scientists and practitioners together to understand the impact of digital technologies on Nature Conservation. Conference remit
We are delighted to welcome keynote speakers at the cutting edge of Digital Conservation:
Jeremy Wilson Head of Research, RSPB Scotland - Opening of the Conference

We aim to bring together participants with a diverse range of experiences and interests in using digital technologies in nature conservation. The first two days of the conference will be a series of talks and poster sessions. The third (demo) day will have: (i) a rolling programme of demonstrations of different technologies; and (ii) small workshops to foster ideas for future work and collaboration in this field. We particularly welcome practitioners to the third day.
