The 5th Portuguese Evolutionary Biology Meeting

21-Dec-2009 - 21-Dec-2009

We are please to announce that the 5th Portuguese Evolutionary Biology Meeting will take place at Instituto Superior de Psicologia Aplicada(ISPA) in Lisbon on December 21st 2009. It is being organized by Unidade de Investigação em Eco-etologia and Centro de Biociências do ISPA (Rua Jardim do Tabaco, 34, Lisbon).

The Portuguese Evolutionary Biology Meetings aim to bring together Portuguese researchers and to promote Evolutionary Biology in Portugal. They are held in late December to allow researchers in foreign institutions to attend, given that many spend their Winter break in Portugal.

To celebrate this special year, we will have Prof. Douglas Futuyma (Stony Brook University, NY, USA) as an invited speaker. The remainder presenters will be either Portuguese or working in Portugal.

Presenters should register by sending a message to with the following information:

- Presentation title,
- Name and affiliation,
- Topic
- Short abstract

The deadline for registration is November 30th. Portuguese and English will be the official languages of the meeting.

Also, we are happy to announce that we will discuss the creation of the Portuguese Evolutionary Biology Association. This idea has been on table for some time now and we will decide if this is the time to formalize it.

We would appreciate ample distribution of this announcement.

Best regards,

The Organizing Committee
