XV International Grouse Symposium postponed
Dear Participants,

Given unprecedented circumstances incurred by the Russian aggression on Ukraine, the IGS Conference Committee has taken a decision to postpone the event to September 2023. Rest assured, we remain firmly dedicated to organize the IGS as an in-person event. We will continue to monitor closely the evolving situation and keep you informed with due notice allowing you to prepare for the participation. We hope next year will enable us to safely gather delegates from around the world to enjoy the IGS.

Marek Konarzewski
On behalf of the Conference Committee

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the 15th International Grouse Symposium  to be hosted by University of Białystok (UoB), Poland, on September 12-16, 2022. The 15th IGS  is co-organized by three institutions: University of Białystok, the Chapter of Polish Academy of Sciences in Białystok and Olsztyn and Directorate of Polish State Forests in Białystok.

The IGS conferences are periodically held under the institutional patronage of the Species Survival Commission, International Union for Conservation of Nature (SSC IUCN). The scope of the conference will highlight the progress made in grouse ecology, genetics and physiology applied to conservation and population management.

We will particularly welcome contributions related to
(1) grouse conservation breeding and reintroduction and
(2) development of methods of monitoring natural populations.

The 15th IGS will follow the format of the successful 2018 Logan Symposium, with a day of workshops, 2-3 days of talks, and a post-conference fieldtrips.
