Seems to be postponed till August/Sept // 4th international conference on bee and hive monitoring 2020 will take place as digital Zoom Conference, July 13-14, 2020

Hi all,

Next July in Montana the Western Apicultural Society is organizing the 4th International Conference on bee and hive monitoring.

Shall you be interested, take a look to the announce and registration.

4th International Conference on Bee and Hive Monitoring – Western Apicultural Society


It looks like this conference also has been postponed to July 2021.

The Montana Honey Bee Summit (2020 WAS Annual Conference, Technology Demonstrations Field Camp and Hive Monitoring Workshop) has been POSTPONED until July 8-13, 2021 due to COVID-19.

I’ve hoped that the conference will thake place in a digital format. So it would be much easier to participate from Europe. Unfortunately now postponed!

Did you receive an update?
the last information I got was on April 29th and was as follows:

The 4th International Bee and Hive Monitoring Conference will have an online ZOOM conference, July 13-14, 2020 .

The face-to-face meeting of the 4th International Bee and Hive Monitoring group has been rescheduled for Missoula, Montana, July 12-13, 2021.

Many thanks for letting us know! I wrote an email to the communications and secretary address more than a week ago but did not get any information! Great that it will take place as online conference!

Hope we’ll “meet” there!

Sound realy interesting, this detail also:

We also want to start a discussion about forming a professional organization for all of us engaged in these innovative and emerging technologies.

I got no further information or login links till now. Some days ago @marten.schoonman from posted in the beep Slack channel

This conference is postponed till August/Sept.

But I got no “officail” canceling information from WAS although I have registered for the conference a time ago. So it seems we will not see us no Monday next week. What a pity!
