Ecology Across Borders: Abstract Submission Now Open

Join us in Ghent and present your research to a large international audience.

We are delighted to announce we are now inviting submissions for oral and poster presentations to ‘Ecology Across Borders,’ the Joint Annual Meeting organised by BES, GfÖ, and NecoV, in association with the EEF.

The majority of talks & all poster presentations for the annual meeting are selected from an open call, giving all delegates the opportunity to present their research to a large international audience – we expect to see 1200 delegates making their way to Ghent this December.

Abstracts are submitted online and should be no longer than 300 words. You can submit an abstract for either a talk or poster presentation. If you are presenting a poster, you will be given the option to present a 1-minute ‘lightning talk’ to promote your poster. To give everyone the chance to present, submissions are limited to one abstract per person.

The deadline is 17:00 (BST), Monday 11 September.

For more details and to submit and abstract please visit the conference website.

Ecology Across Borders will showcase internationally renowned plenary speakers, diverse thematic topic sessions, and interactive workshops forming the main scientific programme.

In addition our social programme is second to none. There are lots of great opportunities for informal networking including; the welcome mixer on the Monday evening, two poster sessions, the Special Interest Groups social events, and not forgetting our entertaining conference dinner! This year we are also running a number of cultural post conference tours, so you can enhance your stay in Ghent.

Our exhibition area is the hub for our posters, games and our fantastic exhibitors. Each of the partner societies will be present here, so do make sure to say hello. Our last day is Christmas day, so don’t forget to bring your festive outfit – we have seen some great jumpers in previous years!

We’re proud of the friendly and welcoming atmosphere at our meetings – bringing people together to forge partnerships and share knowledge – and hope to see you there.
