|Two enthusiastic participants - Mikkel Brydegaard and Giuseppe Bianco.|
- The meeting was very stimulating and demonstrated the great progress CAnMove scientists make in various fields, including e.g. nano-tracking of daphnia, optical insect and bird tracing, predicting bird distributions as climate change, and understanding aerodynamic theory for free-flying birds.
More than 40 CAnMovians joined the 1, 5-day-conference at Bjärsjölagårds slott, including the two science advisory board members Kerstin Johannesson and Christer Wiklund.
No less than 11 interesting research presentations (Bengt Hansson to the left and Emily O'Connor above) and an overview of the latest advances of the CAnMove technical lab, were given during the conference.
Throughout the conference we were blessed with good weather, and it was even possible to sit outside during breaks and discussions!

|Some seemed to enjoy the sun... (Christina Rengefors & Helena Westerdahl)|

For those who were intresested, the staff arranged a tour of the castle (the castle dates back to the end of the 1500 century) on which no less than eight different ghosts were introduced!

As I forgot my camera, there are no pictures from the dinner and the subsequent lounge discussions, but they were nice!
The second day offered more research presentations along with a poster session. The conference ended after lunch, and then the bus headed back to Lund again!
Kerstin and Christer and parts of the PI-group stayed for a short afternoon meeting and more important feedback were given by the visiting SAB-members.
Thanks to everybody who participated and contributed!
