The workshop “models in evolutionary ecology” is organized by PhD students and postdocs, is dedicated to students (PhD students, postdocs, undergrads) interested in theoretical approaches in evolutionary ecology and has three objectives:
- give a broad overview of modeling techniques used in evolutionary ecology and their relationship with experimental work
- encourage dialogue between PhD students using different approaches
- discuss on how to communicate on the models and their meaning to the general public
The workshop is intended to favour exchange as much as possible, and consists in a series of methodological sessions by invited researchers, talks by researchers and students, journal clubs, poster sessions and round-tables. See schedule for details.
Registration to the workshop is free and can be done here before May 19th, 2011. Note that we strongly recommend all participant to present their work in a talk or with a poster. The format of the talk is around 15 minutes + 5 minutes of questions (this may vary depending on the number of submitted talks).
The workshop is primarily aimed at PhD students, but undergraduate students, post-docs or even researchers are welcome.
The seminar will be in English.
