Submissions for symposium proposals for ESEB 2019 (deadline 15.11.2018).
A defining feature of ESEB congresses is the “bottom-up” approach to determining the scientific content of each meeting. The vast majority of the scientific program is arranged in symposia topics that are suggested by ESEB members, and the symposium organisers then also play a major role in selecting the oral and poster presentations from the submitted abstracts. Symposia topics can be on any theme related to evolutionary biology: specific or broad, emerging or well established. A symposium normally consists of around 5–12 oral presentations, or which 1–2 are invited, with remaining abstracts in the theme being presented together in the poster sessions. Invited speakers typically have their congress registration covered (but not travel or accommodation), and have extended speaking time.
