Present and discuss evolutionary questions across all fields (Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Medicine, Philosophy, ...) and levels (from molecules to societies)!


The Münster Evolution Meeting (MEM) wants to provide a forum for all Evolutionary Biologists working across different fields. Besides having the opportunity to share and learn about excellent research in evolutionary biology MEM also aims at bringing together Evolutionary Biologists working in German-speaking countries in a smaller setting, to allow for intensive networking and discussion. Münster is a welcoming and vibrant university town, offering a perfect venue. It was the home of Prof. Dr. Bernhard Rensch, who contributed significantly to the “Modern Evolutionary Synthesis”.

Deadline for abstract submission is 1st May 2018. Regular registration ends 13th September 2018. Registration fee is 80 EUR.
