Advances in Ecological Speciation (AES) Conference

The AES conference aims at joining researchers and students from all over the world to present and discuss cutting-edge ecological speciation research. We hope to provide an informal but stimulating scientific atmosphere which will promote strong interaction and brainstorming between students and more experienced researchers.
The conference will take place on the 29th and 30th of April of 2013, at CIBIO-InBIO facilities. It includes 5 invited plenary talks (see below), 16 oral communications (to be selected), poster sessions and a round table covering the topics of parallel adaptation, genomics of ecological speciation, adaptive radiations and hybridization, among others.
Confirmed Invited Speakers: Dolph Schluter (Biodiversity Research Centre and Zoology Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada) Felicity Jones (Friedich Miescher Laboratory of the Max Planck Society, TŸbingen, Germany) Walter Salzburger (Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Switzerland) Sebastien Renaut (Botany Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada) Roger Butlin (Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, UK).
