Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Ploen, Germany, Sept 5-7th 2018.
Application deadline: April 30th 2018.
We are happy to announce the workshop Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods taking place in Ploen on September 5 - 7th, 2018.
We aim at bringing together researchers working on different structures that influence the evolution of populations. Structures are here broadly conceived, they may be spatial structures (e.g. individuals living in a subdivided territory), interaction-based structures (e.g. food webs) as well as demographic structures (e.g. life cycles). The workshop is meant to be an occasion in which one gets to know techniques and ideas used by other scholars to deal with seemingly different structures that may extrapolate to the study of one's own structure of interest.
Speakers are: Annette Baudisch (University of Southern Denmark), Oana Carja (University of Pennsylvania), Hal Caswell (University of Amsterdam), Nicole Creanza (Vanderbilt University), Florence Debarre (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Recherche en Biologie), Andr M. de Roos (University of Amsterdam) and Bartlomiej Waclaw (University of Edinburgh).
Registration and abstract submission is open until April 30th:
Prior to the start of the workshop, Hal Caswell will give a tutorial about sensitivity analysis of demographic models for ecology and evolution in the morning of the first day (Sept 5th). It is meant mostly for junior scientists and researchers new to demographic modelling; some math background is assumed. This tutorial is limited to 20 participants.
We hope to see you at the workshop. Please spread the word to potentially interested colleagues.
