Evolution 2018

Updated: Oct 24, 2018

The scale of the Evolution2018 joint congress held in Montpellier was almost overwhelming. The organisation was impeccable and we would like to thank the organising committee, and in particular Ophélie Ronce and Yannis Michalakis, for facilitating our ADAPT symposium. Thanks also to all the presenters of posters and talks. We were lucky to receive a broad range of abstracts, but had the unenviable task of selecting just 7 talks and 7 posters from the many submissions. We hope to offer a second opportunity for post-graduate students and early career postdocs to present at an event in 2019. For those that were unable to attend, you can now access a selection of the talks via the links below.
