Anthropology and Conservation Virtual Conference
Date: October 25th - 29th
Paper Submission Deadline: July 2nd
We are very pleased to announce the call for panel proposals for a major interdisciplinary conference on Anthropology and Conservation. The aim of the conference is simple: it is increasingly recognised that conservation can only be properly achieved with Indigenous Peoples, in full recognition of their rights. It is therefore urgent that we develop cross-disciplinary understanding not just of conservation, but also of the way that conservation and people go together. Conservation and Indigenous Knowledge

Sovereignty and inequality
Plants, peoples and conservation
Wildlife conservation: the influence of people on wildlife, and wildlife on people

32nd European Congress of Arachnology 2021
Date: August 23rd - 25th
Keynote Submission Deadline: June 15th
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 11th
Dear Arachnologists and friends of the European Society of Arachnology,
The virtual meeting will focus on the early career researchers who had few opportunities to present their work for more than a year due to the pandemic. Therefore, early career researchers are given preference for short talks and posters. Instead of plenaries given by senior researchers, there will be three keynote talks for early career postdocs by which they will have the opportunity to present themselves and their work.
