Evolution 2017 is the joint conference of the American Society of Naturalists, the Society for the Study of Evolution, and the Society of Systematic Biologists that will be held in Portland, OR from June 23-27.
The meeting will be the premier opportunity for sharing research on evolutionary biology in 2017. Portland is an incredible destination with a terrific convention center, great restaurants, and several famous entertainment districts. We anticipate 1800-2000 attendees, 1,000+ talks, and 400+ posters. The annual iEvoBio satellite conference will also occur.
Social activities will include an opening reception and SSE Public outreach lecture, mixers during each of three evening poster sessions, and a Super Social with open bar at the newly expanded Oregon Zoo on the final night (no speeches). With the exception of only a small additional charge for the Super Social, all of this is included with your registration.
Code of Conduct. There have been reports of unprofessional behavior and harassment during some of the social events at the recent meeting in Portland. The joint societies take these issues seriously and are in the process of revising procedures to make the existing Code of Conduct more visible, to make reporting of transgressions easier, and to implement changes to activities and venues that could reduce the occurrence of such incidents. All social events are professional events, meant to foster professional networking and collaborations; fair, respectful, and professional standards must always be practiced when interacting with colleagues. Please refer to the conference policies, which all attendees agreed to uphold, for more information.
