XVth ESEB Meeting, Lausanne

The Department of Ecology and Evolution of the University of Lausanne is delighted to organise the 2015 meeting of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology.  It will be held on August 10th-14th 2015 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Abstract submission and registration will be open in November 2014 through the Registration link.

Meeting overview

The venue for the 2015 meeting will be the campus of the University of Lausanne.

A welcome reception will take place on Sunday August 9th in front of the Palais de Rumine in the heart of the Lausanne city.

The official program will begin on Monday the 10th of August 2015. It will consist of a series of parallel sessions which will run throughout the 5 days. We will also have specific poster sessions associated with the different symposia that will be organised.

The Wednesday afternoon will be available to visit the Lausanne region. You can get an overview of the possibilities proposed by visiting the page dedicated to excursions.

The ESEB offers travel stipends to support participation of student members from economically disadvantaged countries. Two special scientific lectures are also given by the winners of the John Maynard Smith Prize in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

A final banquet will be organised on the final evening of the conference on Friday August 14h. It will take place on the University campus in front of Lake Geneva and the Alps. There will also be time for social events throughout the conference in the Casino de Montbenon where a conference bar will be available.

Abstract submissions and conference registration will be done through an online system hosted by Lausanne-Tourisme. It will be open early November 2014. The organisers of ESEB 2015 acknowledge the concern on gender balance and wish to ensure that symposia selected for ESEB in Lausanne draw participants (both invited and those selected for inclusion when abstracts are reviewed) as broadly as possible to reflect the full research strengths of the fields represented.

We look forward to seeing you all there and welcoming you to Switzerland!
