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 Gould Prize 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.
Early registration discount has ended but you can still register (or modify your existing registration) here. Accommodations can be booked here. Talk and poster signup is through the registration link & will remain open until May 20 or until all slots fill (talks only).
Biking & Hiking: get some exercise during the meeting. Sign up here for a lunch-time bike tour or hike before the Super Social on Tuesday.
