A little bit of history

Since 2020, at the University of Montpellier, in France, a student seminar is organized yearly on Models in Ecology and Evolution. Inspired by this event, a team of PhD students organized a similar conference entitled Modelling and Evolution in Ecology Zurich (Switzerland) in Summer 2019. At the beginning of Autumn 2019, our team set out to reproduce this stimulating environment in a 2 days conference. Thus was born the Modelling in Ecology and Evolution meeting 2020, nicknamed MEEM2020. It was supposed to take place on June 25-26, 2020, in Lausanne, Switzerland, but COVID-19 decided otherwise. After long deliberations, postponing, transfering the conference online, we finally decided to re-invent MEEM2020 as a series of short seminars taking place all year long, online... Until we can meet - safely - physically again!

we stand for

sense of community

in science.

01

Sense of community

our meetings promote interactions and discussions between all participants, and provides a platform for the new generation of researchers to build a strong network.

02

Equal opportunities

registration to our meetings is completely free of charge, guaranteeing everyone access to the talks on a first come, first served basis. Selection of abstracts is conducted in a double-blind fashion to reduce unconscious biases.

03

Eco-responsibility

for the time being, our meetings take place online. we are thus wary of issues such as data storage. If in the future we move our meetings on a physical space, we will consider issues relating to travel, reusables, etc.
