The 50th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland "Ecology – Science in Transition, Science for Transition" is going to take place at the Technische Universität Braunschweig and the Thünen-Institut of Biodiversity in Braunschweig, Germany, between 30 August - 3 September 2021.
The local organizing committee and the board of GfÖ have decided to postpone the 2020 conference by one year due to the global Corona-virus situation. With the new dates for the 50th annual meeting of the GfÖ being fixed in 2021
Important points related to the organization of the conference and participant presentations are:
- already accepted sessions/workshops remain accepted, the call for sessions will be re-opened in November until February 28th 2021;
- accepted sessions/workshops can be freely edited by authors to reflect new research;
- new session proposals can be submitted.
The Association of Applied Biologists (AAB) has teamed up with the Royal Entomological Society and the British Ecological Society to deliver a 3-day conference “Shaping the Future for Pollinators: Innovations in Farmed Landscapes”.
Pollinators play a vital role in maintaining both semi-natural and agricultural ecosystems and healthy populations bolster food security, livelihoods and social wellbeing. With evidence that many species of pollinators are in decline, their conservation and management is of great public, economic and political interest. As a result, the ecology and conservation of managed and wild pollinators is a rapidly growing field of research, alongside the study of their associated ecosystem services. This conference aims to determine how we can shape farmed landscapes to make them resilient to future challenges such as climate change. Delegates will explore the impact of agricultural practices at the farm and landscape scale on pollinator behaviour, ecology and the delivery of ecosystem services. Talks and discussions not only to share current best practices on the sustainable management of pollination services, but explore how novel innovations can create new opportunities and address future risks. This conference aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and policymakers to debate recent advancements in the field of pollinator research; and also to go beyond ecological research to explore emerging technologies within the field.
Based just 15 minutes from both London and the historic city of Windsor, delegates will be able to deepen their understanding of the topics, expand their networks, and enjoy the nearby attractions. A public ‘Myth Busting’ event will held locally to raise awareness and increase public understanding of pollinators and pollination services.
This joint meeting with the 2nd edition of COLOSS Asia will gather international researchers with diverse expertise on bees evolution and health. Attendees must be registered COLOSS members.
Application deadline is 5th February 2021. For more information about abstract submission click here.
Amid the COVID world crisis, Okinawa institute of science and technology graduate university will host and provide an online Mini-Symposia on the theme of "Honey Bee Health in A Changing World". This is a joint meeting of OIST and COLOSS Asia, and aims to gather international researcher with diverse expertise on bee evolution and health.
Registration for OIST Mini-Symposia and COLOSS Asia is free.
