About the Event

WELCOME TO MEEM 2020!

A conference by and for early-career researchers in ecology and evolution who work with mathematical and computational models.

 

We are a team of young researchers from the University of Lausanne, composed of PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. We collectively set out to run an international conference in Lausanne during the summer of 2020, with the values "sense of community", "eco-responsibility" and "equal opportunities" guiding our steps throughout the development, implementation and the progress of the event. We seek to bring together the new generation of researchers and some renowned experts in the field during a small-sized, short, and free-of-charge meeting. By doing so, we aim at strengthening ties between modellers and emulating scientific discussions on a variety of topics. Early-career researchers conducting PhDs or postdoctoral research are selected for presenting their projects in talks or posters, and four speakers are invited: Damaris Zurell, Silvia De Monte, Elisa Thébault, and one yet to be announced. Further discussion among all participants is highly encouraged during the poster session and around discussion tables. 

Sign-up and submit an abstract via the participation or submission page!
