The Evolution Conference – or informally to many, the 'Evolution meeting' – is the joint annual conference of the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Society of Systematic Biologists, and the American Society of Naturalists.
The conference is the premier opportunity for the presentation and discussion of scientific research in all areas of evolutionary biology. It features numerous contributed talks, multiple society-selected symposia and organized 'spotlight' sessions with invited speakers on specific themes, several poster sessions, and keynote addresses including from the Presidents of each society and one or more public outreach seminars. There are also various workshops each year and academic publishers and scientific suppliers contribute through their exhibits and sponsorship.
This website is the single-stop location for all information on past, present, and future Evolution conferences.
