As speakers of the section "Developmental Biology" we are happy to announce that the Graduate Meeting "Evo-Devo in Germany: Status quo and future directions" will take place from March 4 - 6, 2019 at the Akademie Waldschlösschen.
Kindly supported by
The main aim of our meeting is to provide a basis for scientific exchange by bringing together young academics interested in Evolutionary Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo) with established pioneers in the field. With this meeting we want to cover a variety of approaches to Evo-Devo. Therefore, our invited speakers include researchers working on animals as well as on plants; we will cover experimental as well as theoretical and computational work. This interdisciplinary and small meeting will offer the opportunity for intense discussion and scientific exchange about the state of the art and future of Evo-Devo research in Germany.
Please note that the number of participants is restricted to 30. Priority will be given to members of the German Zoological Society as well as to graduate students and interested undergrad students.
To provide a solid basis for discussions and exchange we would like to ask all participants to present their work to everyone. We offer two types of contributions:
Please indicate in the registration form, which type of contribution you prefer. We will select short talks from all abstracts.
