Join us at our joint Annual Meeting with the French Society for Ecology and Evolution (SFE²).

After a successful joint Annual Meeting in 2014, the British Ecological Society (BES) and the French Society for Ecology and Evolution (SFE²) have been working hard to make our next joint meeting equally great.  

The coronavirus pandemic made planning this event uniquely challenging in 2020. Despite exploring several options, we mutually agreed that the best option is to postpone the joint conference

The planned joint Annual Meeting of the BES and the SFE² will now be held in 2021. The two societies look forward to working together on an excellent and welcoming conference for their members and the global ecological community.  

The conference, Ecology Across Borders 2021, will take place from 12–15 December 2021 in Liverpool, UK.

We will continue to monitor the global coronavirus pandemic and hope to hold this event in-person if public health guidance allows, whilst exploring online elements. In any case, we will strive to run the best event possible to serve the ecological community.
