Keynote speakers are: Cynthia Riginos (University of Queensland), Nicolas Bierne (University of Montpellier), Andreas Hejnol (Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology), Marjorie Oleksiak, (Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science), Nicolas Galtier (University of Montpellier), and Frédérique Viard (Station Biologique Roscoff).


Location: Strömstad, Sweden
Abstract deadline: 1 February 2018

Population, Evolutionary and Quantitative Genetics

13-16 May 2018


Building on the momentum of the highly successful #PEQG16 (held at GSA’s The Allied Genetics Conference), the 2018 Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference (#PEQG18) brings together population, evolutionary, and quantitative geneticists to promote cross-disciplinary exchange between those doing theoretical and experimental work in these broad but overlapping fields. Topics will span the diversity of PEQG, including: theoretical population genetics, molecular evolution, quantitative and complex traits, population genomics, experimental evolution, adaptation and ecological genetics, statistical genetics, genome evolution, and speciation.


Location: Madison, United States

Organizers: Fernando Pardo-Manuel de Villena, Dmitri Petrov, Matthew Hahn, Hopi Hoekstra, Lauren McIntyre & Matt Rockman

The 1st AsiaEvo Conference

18-20 April 2018


The AsiaEvo Conference is a platform that will bring together researchers from all fields concerned with evolution, including genomics, developmental biology, paleontology, phylogenetics, ecology, biogeography, evo-devo, and others from Asia and the rest of the world. The conference aims to stimulate evolutionary research in Asian area, to reinforce cross-disciplinary collaboration among countries, and to promote young researchers.


Location: Shenzhen, China

Models in Population Dynamics, Ecology and Evolution

9-13 April 2018


The meeting will consider applications of mathematical modelling to explore processes and mechanisms in various biological systems ranging from a cell to the human society. A special focus will be on the interplay between ecology and evolution across time and space. MPDEE’18 is also expected to explore similarities between modelling techniques traditionally applied in ecology and evolution and those used in other life sciences with the purpose to enhance interdisciplinary approaches and to stimulate further advances in population dynamics, ecology and evolution. The meeting will be an open forum for interaction between theoreticians and empirical biologists with the main goal of enhancing communication between the two groups to better link theories with empirical realities.


Location: Leicester, United Kingdom
Registration deadline: 31 January 2018

Organizers: Andrew Morozov & Sergei Petrovskii

Origins of Life Gordon Research Conference
