Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting 2018

Date: 13 February 2018 - 14 February 2018
Location: Conference Centre "De Werelt", Westhofflaan 2, Lunteren

Scope

Each year, on the second Tuesday and Wednesday of February, the Netherlands Ecological Research Network (NERN) organises her annual conference, the Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM). This conference is particularly geared towards people working in the field of ecology and/or evolution. It aims to strengthen the network of ecologists in the Netherlands, Belgium, and surrounding countries and provides an overview of the work carried out by the people in the network. The NAEM meeting is two full days, each day consisting of a plenary session, in which a Dutch/Flemish and an international world leader present their view on a specific topic in ecology or evolution, two sets of five parallel sessions (including more workshop-like sessions), and a poster session. Parallel sessions generally consists of 6 oral presentations, thus leading to a total of approximately 125 oral presentations. On average, we have about 75-100 scientific poster presentations during the meeting. On Tuesday evening, a more relaxed and thought-provoking presentation is generally scheduled. The NAEM meeting is organised in collaboration with the Dutch-Flemish Ecological Society (NecoV) and is financially supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

This year will be the 11th edition of the Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM). As always, the meeting will be held at Conference Centre "De Werelt" in Lunteren. At this stage, the four plenary speakers have been confirmed, and the call for submissions of parallel session proposals is now open (deadline for submissions = Wednesday 25 October 2017, 12 NOON). Below, you can find more details about the general set-up of the programme and about the deadlines for submission of contributions to the 2018 NAEM meeting. You are cordially invited to register your participation.

Call for submission of proposals for parallel sessions => NOW OPEN!

On Tuesday 5 September 2017, the call for submission of proposals for parallel sessions opened. The NAEM organising committee invites those interested to orgainse/convene a parallel session during the 2018 NAEM Meeting to submit their proposal for a parallel session. The deadline for submission of parallel session proposals is Wednesday 25 October 2017. As last year, the proposed parallel sessions will be posted on the NAEM website as to give insight in which sessions have already been proposed and whether your personal topic of interest is already covered or lacking. In case your personal topic of interest is lacking, we invite you to submit a proposal for a parallel session on this topic yourself (of course only so long as the deadline for submissions has not passed). Finally, please note that some sessions may be pre-defined / pre-positioned by the NAEM Organising Committee, to ensure a broad and interesting programme for all.
