Three satellite symposia and one workshop will be held prior/right after the main meeting. You can register for these using the Registration link from the main menue. For details on the different symposia, please check out this site and/or contact the organizers (see below)
Neuroethology: 11.09-12.09, organizers: B. Chagnaud and K. Pfeiffer
This bi-annual meeting brings together PIs, students and researchers with a joint interest in the neuronal underpinnings of behavior. Keynote by:
- Monday 11.09.17: Malcolm MacIver (USA) : "Understanding animals through sensory evolution and robotics."
From Molecule to Function 11.09.16-12.09.16
From Molecule to Function: 11.09-12.09, organizers: Annika Herwig & Bettina Zeis
This meeting is organized by the Physiology section. Keynote lectures will focus on the potential of CRISPR/CAS for physiological research. Short presentations and posters are open to all topics of physiological research. Students as well as experienced researchers are invited to participate.
Genomic Systematics 11.09.16-12.09.16
Genomic Systematics: 11.09-12.09, organizers: S. Bradler & T. H. Struck
In the past decade, the emphasis for reconstructing species phylogenies has moved from the analysis of a single or few genes to the analysis of multiple genes and even completed genomes. Reconstructing evolutionary trees based on large portions of genomes poses numerous methodological challenges that we will tackle in this satellite symposium organized by the Zoological Systematics section. Besides three invited key speakers that will present their research, e.g. on the use of transcriptomes and retroposons for tree reconstructions, we invite young scientists and experienced researchers alike to present short presentations and posters.
Keynotes will be presented by:
- Christoph Bleidorn (Madrid) : "State of the art of phylogenomics: promise and pitfalls"
- Alexander Suh (Uppsala) : "Retroposons for phylogeny reconstructions"
- Sabrina Simon (Wageningen) : "Transcriptomics"
Animal Welfare 16.09.16
Animal Welfare: 16.09, organizers: B. Caspers and A. Ziesenis
This workshop is designed for everyone using live vertebrate animals for scientific purposes. Invited speakers will give an update about a variety of different topics, such as animal welfare, legislation, animal experimentation. Participants will also get an certificate of attendance.
Workshop language is german and english!
