Deadline for abstract submission is extended to 30 June

The congress will be organized at the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences and the Department of Agricultural Sciences, Food and Environment of Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona, Italy.

The congress will be structured in SEVEN SIMPOSIA dealing with different fields in evolutionary biology:

  • Biodiversity conservation using genes and genomes

  • Dynamics of genomic diversity in domesticated species

  • Population genetics using modern and ancient data

  • Advances in phylogeography and phylogenomics

  • Behaviour and ecology: an evolutionary perspective

  • Evolution of forms from genes to cells to organisms

  • Microbial genomics and evolution

There will be a poster session, social and outreach events, and awards for our young scholars (more info coming soon!).

The Society is also pleased to offer a crash course in Best practices for high quality genome assembly, organized in partnership with the European Reference Genome Atlas (ERGA) consortium.
