Meeting Overview

You can download the meeting overview here, which outlines main live sessions taking place throughout the live week (Monday 14 – Friday 18 December).


Delegate Information

Our delegate guidelines provide you with all the key information to help you get the most out of the conference and navigate your way around the virtual experience. Please take the time to read through these before the conference.


Full Programme

The full programme is now available via the Festival of Ecology conference app. This includes full abstracts and author lists for both live and on-demand content, information on session times, and a list of our exhibitors. This should be used as the programme alongside the main conference platform.

The app allows you to browse all content before the conference starts and add any sessions or talks you want to view to your schedule, creating a list of things to watch throughout the week.

The app can be viewed on any device and opened as a web browser if you would prefer not to download the app. However, the added benefit of downloading to your phone, is the ability to set reminders and receive notifications so you don’t miss out on a session!

You will receive an email invitation detailing how to access the app. If you have not received this by Thursday 10 December, please check your junk/clutter folder first, and then email the Events Team.
