Event description

Description

The BES Quantitative and Movement Ecology special interest groups will be holding their annual meetings back to back on 9th & 10th July 2019 in Sheffield. This joint meeting will take advantage of shared strengths as well as shared challenges between the two groups, and foster links between them.

The meeting will be along the shared theme of Analysing big datasets while answering big ecological questions and the challenges associated with it. We welcome talks, posters and will have discussions on general issues with computation; integrating different datasets; and propagating uncertainty in ecological analyses.

Attendees will have the opportunity to attend one, or both annual meetings. Note that it is cheaper to join the BES as a member and register for a BES member ticket, than to register for the non-BES member ticket.

Quantitative Ecology Keynotes

Rachel McCrea (University of Kent) & James Grecian (University of St Andrews)

Movement Ecology Keynotes

Samantha Patrick (University of Liverpool), Karine Heerah (Aarhus University), Théo Michelot (University of St Andrews) & Grant Hopcraft (Glasgow University).

TALKS AND POSTERS

We will have slots for talks and space for posters at the meeting. Talks will be 5 minutes long. There may not be enough talk slots for everyone, so priority will be given to early career researchers. Please include a rough title when you register so we have an idea of the balance of topics (you can change it later). Students will also be given the option to put themselves forward for the student plenary talk (20 minutes). We highly recommend applying; it's fun and a great thing to put on your CV.

ACCESSIBILITY

All facilities, rooms and spaces in the conference venue are wheelchair-accessible and there are disabled parking spaces nearby. See https://www.accessable.co.uk/venues/alfred-denny-building for more information and please contact us if you have any questions.

FAMILIES AND CHILDCARE

If you plan to bring your baby or young child to the meeting, please get in touch with us to let us know what facilities you would require, for example, a room for nursing or créche facilities. We have not made any specific arrangements for families but we will be happy to help as much as we can.
