2nd call for abstracts for the Midwest Ecology and Evolution Conference (MEEC)!

* Abstracts for oral and poster presentations due date - Feb 22nd, 2013. * Plenary presentations by Drs. Mike Vanni and Rowan Barrett

The Midwest Ecology and Evolution Conference is an annual migratory conference that is explicitly student hosted and attended from institutions located in the Midwestern United States. The conference supplies an excellent opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present data in a regional setting, and to be able to network with other students from nearby universities. The conference also presents an excellent opportunity to practice speaking in a low pressure atmosphere compared to large, national conferences, and is more easily accessible for universities without funding for travel to large conferences.

This year the conference will be hosted at the University of Notre Dame on March 23-24, 2013. Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are due by February 22nd, 2013. Registration and abstract submission can be done at meec2013.wordpress.com, and any questions may be forwarded to meec2013@gmail.com. While "professional" scientists are welcome to attend, presentations may only be given by graduate students, undergraduates, and postdocs.

Registration fees for the conference are $35, with an optional $18 banquet dinner to be held Saturday evening. Plenary speakers for the event will be Dr. Michael Vanni from Miami University (OH) and Dr. Rowan Barrett from Harvard University. Titles and abstracts for plenary presentations will be posted on the MEEC website.
