About the conference

Scientific research is fundamental for effective management and to foster species and ecosystems conservation. The recent history of some mountain ungulates gives examples on how these results can be achieved. In the last decades, however, as research and technology progresses and knowledge increases, new questions arise on exciting and urgent challenges both for researchers and managers. Answering to those questions will require an inclusive approach that integrates different perspectives. It is with this aim, that we are delighted to invite you to the 8th Conference on Mountain Ungulates (Cogne, Aosta Valley, Italy, 27-30 Sept. 2022). As in the spirit of past editions, the goal of the conference is to share the most recent and interesting results of research on mountain ungulates as well as to provide networking opportunities for researchers and wildlife managers. Several topics will be covered, with the ambitious aim of facilitating the integration of different research fields and connecting them with management and conservation.

Sessions on the following topics are planned: Ecology, Behaviour and Evolution; Genetics; Systematics and Palaeontology; Health and Diseases; Conservation and Management; Monitoring methods; Conservation technologies. Details on each session are provided here. In addition, a poster session and round tables will be organized.

Registration and abstract submission are now open [register]. The deadline for early registration with reduced fare is 28th February 2022. We encourage you to submit your abstract no later than 15th May 2022, choosing the appropriate session. If you would like to present on a topic not included in those proposed here, please select “other topics” and we will be happy to consider your presentation.
