ESF workshop on evolutionary and physiological adaptation to climate induced environmental changes:
We would like to invite young scientists to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations for a workshop on evolutionary and physiological adaptation to climate induced environmental changes .
The European Science Foundation finances the workshop through the networking programs ConGen and ThermAdapt. In the workshop, we will merge knowledge from population genetics and molecular and evolutionary physiology in a multidisciplinary fashion and discuss possible approaches to get a deeper understanding of mechanisms behind adaptation to thermal changes.
We have invited approximately twenty leading researchers within the field to give talks and have space for additional 30-35 short presentations and/or poster presentations. Priority will be given to young scientists (PhD or post docs) from EU countries, particularly from those countries that support one or both of the ESF programmes (see www.esf.org/thermadapt and www.esf.org/congen for a list of countries).
The workshop will be held in Bialowieza ( Poland ) from 28 June (date of arrival) to 2 July 2009 in the EU Centre of Excellence (MRI PAS) Mammal Research Institute ( Polish Academy of Science). Accommodation and food are covered by the ESF. Furthermore, after application some young researchers may get covered their travel expenses or parts thereof.
Further information about the workshop including application procedures, a list of invited speakers and information about accommodation and transportation from Warsaw to Bialowieza (and return) can be found at the homepage: http://asg.agrsci.dk/workshop/bialowieza. The deadline for applications is March 15.
