The Endangered Primate Rescue Center and Cuc Phuong National Park are pleased to announce the

3rd International Conference
 Conservation of Primates in Indochina
8. – 12. October 2013
in Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam

The conference will be arranged under the patronage of the Administration of Forestry of Vietnam with additional support from Frankfurt Zoological Society and Leipzig Zoo, Germany.
In 2003 the first international primate conference in VietnamConservation of Primates in Vietnam’ took place in Cuc Phuong National Park, organized by Frankfurt Zoological Society. This first conference hosted 110 participants from 13 countries.
In 2008 the second international primate conference ‘Conservation of Primates in Indochina included 130 participants from 10 countries.
Keeping to this schedule of quinquennial primatological conferences in Cuc Phuong we would like to invite all interested primatologists and conservationists to attend the third conference ‘Conservation of Primates in Indochina’. This will allow the exchange of information about primate conservation work in the region including the results of research and status of primates, and will be a step in the preparations for the IPS Congress in August 2014.
Aside from scientific presentations pre and post conference tours are planned. Integrated in the program is a field trip to Van Long Nature Reserve with the possibility to observe the endemic and ‘Critically Endangered’ Delacour’s langurs (Trachypithecus delacouri) in their natural habitat.
We hope to provide an attractive agenda with interesting presentations, field trips, and a pleasant stay at Cuc Phuong National Park with the possibility to visit the Endangered Primate Rescue Center which currently houses more than 150 primates representing 15 species of Vietnams’ endangered primates.

The organizers of the conference invite all participants to present their work. The contents of the presentation should focus on relevant information on primate species of Indochina. Presentations are planned for 15 minutes + 5 minutes for questions and discussions.
Abstracts should be submitted by May 30th to
