Deadlines extended

The originally announced early bird deadline has already passed, but we are extending it by two weeks (until 15 May), together with the abstract submission deadline (31 May). 

The conference will be promoted during the 37th SIL congress, which starts in Brazil tomorrow, and we want to give the participants of that meeting the chance to register as “early birds”, and give them enough time to prepare the abstracts.

Keynote Speakers

Two excellent European cladocerologists, Justyna Wolinska (Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries & Freie Universität Berlin, Germany) and Jana Isanta-Navarro (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) accepted our invitation to give keynote lectures. Learn more about them.

Both talks will focus on different aspects of cutting-edge experimental research, using cladocerans as model organisms. So it should not come as a surprise that they will be rather Daphnia-centered. However, we are sure the topics (ecological impacts of environmental threats, and evolutionary ecology) will be of major interest to all of us attending the meeting, regardless of the specific taxon we study.
