Online Ecology Conferences
This course is organized into two parts presenting the theoretical and practical foundations of geographic information systems (GIS).
- Together these courses constitute an introduction to GIS and require no prior knowledge. - By following this introduction to GIS you will quickly acquire the basic knowledge required to create spatial databases and produce high-quality maps and cartographic representations. - This is a practical course and is based on free, open-source software, including QGIS. If you study or work in the analysis of geographically distributed objects such as biology or ecology, then this course is for you!
Quantitative SIG Annual Meeting
Date: August 31st - September 2nd
Abstract Submission Deadline: August 13th
Registration Deadline: August 16th
The Quantitative Ecology Group aims to highlight cutting edge quantitative methods and approaches, as well as train the next generation of quantitative ecologists. As such we are a highly inclusive group, and the conference aims to foster collaboration across career stages, sub-disciplines and geographic regions.
This year’s meeting will take place across three days, with themes of
Integrating models and data in ecology
Bringing together mathematicians and quantitative ecologists
Interdisciplinary Quantitative Ecology.
To accommodate the time zone differences, the conference will take place at different times each day as follows:
Tuesday 31st August: 8am – 11am BST (GMT +1)
Wednesday 1st September: 5pm – 8pm BST
Thursday 2nd September: 11am – 2pm BST
European Society of Evolutionary Biology Virtual Meeting (Satellite Symposia)
Date: August 9th - 11th
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 31st

How does phylogenetic uncertainty impact biogeographic inference?
Phylogenetics and biogeography are intimately linked fields that, when integrated, aim to elucidate general principles of how and why species are distributed where they are in a comparative context. In this satellite symposium, we aim to bring together researchers who study historical biogeography and future range shifts to discuss how phylogenetic uncertainty impacts biogeographic inference. We will use this opportunity to discuss new methods that either improve phylogenetic resolution or allow us to account for phylogenetic uncertainty in this work.
POSea 2021 Conference
Date: October 1st - 3rd
Abstract Submission Deadline: TBC
The organizations of Minorities in Shark Sciences (MISS), Latinx in the Marine Sciences, Black in Marine Science (BIMS), Black Women in Ecology, Evolution and Marine Science (BWEEMS), Minorities in Aquarium and Zoo Science (MIAZS) and BIPOC in Ocean Science are collaborating to host a virtual joint conference for the marine science BIPOC community.
This conference will provide networking opportunities and professional development opportunities for participants while showcasing the work of BIPOC marine scientists from around the world.
A BIPOC only preview event will be held July 31st, 2021. Our main conference events will be held October 1st-3rd. Allies are welcome to attend the main conference events and support the conference by purchasing a $10 ally ticket. The conference is free for BIPOC scientists.
