The 2019 Congress

of the European Society

for Evolutionary Biology

19 - 24 August 2019

Welcome to the ESEB2019 congress

Welcome to the ESEB2019 congress, to be held at the Logomo Congress and Events Center in Turku, Finland, on 19-24 August 2019.
The congress will commence on Monday, August 19, 2019, with the welcome reception, and will continue until Saturday, August 24, concluding with the conference dinner at Moomin World on this evening.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s report last year woke many people to think about their own environmental impact and carbon footprint. ESEB 2019 Turku wants to take part in this and offer everyone environmental friendly opportunities and choices.


  • In order to encourage open science, and to allow people not able to attend ESEB2019 to have access to presentations, we are providing presenters the opportunity for their presentations to be live streamed and also available for viewing following the conference.
