COMMUNITY ECOLOGY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY – FROM GENES TO ECOSYSTEMS
October 17-19, 2016 | CIBIO-InBIO, Évora, Portugal

Of the many problems confronting society on the veil of the 21st Century, one of the gravest is the likelihood that modern humans may so change the intricate workings of the earth’s ecosystems that they will no longer be able to provide the support that human culture requires for its existence. Yet, our ability to understand and predict the effects of human actions on species and communities is still severely limited. During this 3-day event we will discuss the workings of nature at all levels of organisation, from genes to ecosystems. We will focus on recent advances in ecological theory, as well as on some of the new trends in experimental (macro) ecology and next-generation sequencing that provides unprecedented opportunities to measure and monitor changes in the natural environment.

Confirmed keynotes: ​Jonathan Chase, Anna Eklof, Matthew Leibold, Tom Gilbert, ​Dominique Gravel, David Vieites, Guy Woodward

The last day of the event will be devoted to a series of introductory workshops on a range of topics: Network Analysis; Species Modelling; Introduction to Bioinformatics and « Introduction to Stochastic Dynamic Modelling »

Abstract submission deadline 10th of July*
Early bird registration deadline: July 31, 2016.

*Given that the available time for oral presentations is limited, the organising committee might not be able to allocate you a slot, in which case you will be offered the possibility to present a poster.
