Biology18 is the largest conference of organismic biology in Switzerland and aims to provide a platform for exchange between students, researchers and professors across scientific institutions, research groups and topic areas. Biology18 is also the annual joint meeting of the Swiss Zoological, Botanical, and Systematics societies.
The two-day conference will include four plenary talks by invited speakers, many oral presentations by early career scientists and poster sessions. Maintaining the long tradition, Thursday evening will feature the Darwin Dinner to honor Darwin’s birthday.
Biology18 is preceded by a workshop on Wednesday afternoon organized by the SIB (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics) and a public outreach event on Wednesday evening. The scientific speed-dating returns to Biology18 and will be hosted by French speaking scientists to engage with the public about their research.
Registration and Abstract Submission deadline: 20.12.2017
