Event description

Description

The 62nd Meeting of the Ecological Genetics Group will be held at the Skempton Building, Imperial College London between the 10th and 12th of April, 2018. The conference is sponsored by the British Ecological Society and the Genetics Society.

There will be a full scientific and social programme throughout the three-day period of the conference. We hope to bring together those working in the fields of population genetics, ecology and evolution from across Europe and beyond.

Talks and posters are welcome from all!

For those of you still completing your MScs and PhDs, remember that you will have the chance to win the coveted best talk/poster prizes! The Ecological Genetics Group meetings have a long tradition of being friendly and relaxed, where young researchers studying for their PhDs can mix with established academics, and the organizing team will ensure that this tradition is upheld.

Natural History Museum Behind the Scenes Tour

On Wednesday afternoon there will be a free tour of the collections held at the Natural History Museum, which is located just across the road from the Skempton Building.

Social Programme

Tea / Coffee will be provided in the area adjoining the lecture theatre throughout the conference, there is an optional lunch package for those that wish for it to be provided.

There is a full package that includes lunch and attendance at the Conference Dinner, that will take place on the Wednesday evening of the conference.

Pub Quiz

The now legendary “EGG-Heads” pub quiz will be held on the Wednesday night following the conference dinner. If previous incarnations are anything to go by, expect the unexpected and the ridiculous!
