Event description

Description

CEE’s autumn symposium 2016 will highlight the diverse array of research conducted by CEE members and provide opportunities for discussion and mingling to foster collaborations across CEE institutions.

A series of 10 minute flash talks will cover topics from neurogenomics to palaeobiology to conservation and climate change, providing rich fodder for conversations over lunch, coffee, and wine. All staff, postdocs, and students are encouraged to attend to jumpstart the academic year and engage with other London-area researchers in ecology and evolution.
