Telemetry Workshop Series


February 17-20, 2020
Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS

Presented by OTN & ideasOTN
Hosted by: Kim Whoriskey & Rob Lennox

For sixty years, researchers have used acoustic telemetry to study aquatic animal movement. Contemporary studies are increasingly complex in design, implementation, and analysis. This workshop series will present and discuss skills essential to conducting successful telemetry studies, drawing on and synthesizing the latest developments in technology, statistics, and network collaboration.

Designed for early career researchers, this series will provide students, postdocs, and early career professionals the opportunity to expand their networks while receiving applied training in a dynamic environment. The workshop will conclude with a session focused on new review and synthesis projects to help push our discipline forward.
