Registration for the next meeting of the Netherlands Society for Evolutionary Biology (NLSEB) is now open! 

TUESDAY 28 JUNE, Akoesticum, Ede

Registration link, deadline 10 June!

With this yearly NLSEB meeting, we aim to bring together scientists from all disciplines working on evolutionary questions, and build a broad community of evolutionary biologists based in the Netherlands.

Therefore, the meeting offers a broad overview of the topics and questions within evolutionary biology, presented in three exciting plenary talks, presented by Eric Snijder (LUMC)Jaap Kaandorp (UvA) and Katja Peijnenburg (Naturalis).

You can also contribute to the meeting! Talks and posters are organised entirely bottom-up: we want to know what YOU are working on, without any subject limitation. We will select at least 16 oral contributions (15 min. including discussion) and there will be plenty of room and time for posters. Submission of abstracts (max. 1000 characters) for talks and posters is open until 16 May 2022
