Conference: Advances in Ecological Speciation

We are pleased to announce the conference “Advances in Ecological Speciation” (AES) organized by CIBIO (Research Centre in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, University of Porto, Portugal).

The AES conference aims at joining researchers and students from all over the world to present and discuss cutting-edge ecological speciation research. We hope to provide an informal but stimulating scientific atmosphere which will promote strong interaction and brainstorming between students and more experienced researchers.

The conference will take place on the 29th and 30th of April of 2013, at CIBIO facilities in Vairão (near Porto), Portugal. It includes 5 invited plenary talks (see below), 16 oral communications (to be selected) and poster sessions covering the topics parallel adaptation, genomics of ecological speciation, adaptive radiations and hybridization, among others.

Confirmed Invited Speakers:
Dolph Schluter (Biodiversity Research Centre and Zoology Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada)
Felicity Jones (Friedich Miescher Laboratory of the Max Planck Society, Tübingen, Germany)
Walter Salzburger (Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Switzerland)
Sebastien Renaut (Botany Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada)
Roger Butlin (Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, UK)

A webpage with detailed information concerning the scientific programme, registration and abstract submission will become available soon. Until then, any questions regarding the conference can be sent to aes@cibio.up.pt

We look forward to see you at Vairao, Portugal in April.
