The Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology (SIBE-ISEB) welcomes you to its
8th Congress that will be held in Padova on 1-4 September 2019

The congress will be organized by the Department of Biology of the University of Padua and hosted in the wonderful locations of the historical Botanical Garden, the most ancient botanical garden in the world and UNESCO world heritage, and in the ‘Galileo Galilei’ Main Hall of the XVI century Palazzo Bo.

Six symposia, encompassing many different fields in evolutionary biology and with eminent invited speakers, may host your contribution:

  • Units of diversity: tools, strategies and case-studies to define species limits
    Invited speaker: Birgit Schlick-Steiner (University of Innsbruck, Austria)
  • Evolution in marine environments
    Invited speaker: Lloyd Peck (British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK)
  • Social behaviour: ecology and evolution
    Invited speaker: Daniela Campobello (University of Palermo, Italy)
  • Conservation and evolution
    Invited speaker: Christopher Clements (University of Bristol, UK)
  • Phylo3: Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics & Phylogeography
    Invited speaker: Daniele Silvestro (University of Gothenburg, Sweden and University of Lausanne, CH)
  • Population genetics and population genomics
    Organized in partnership with the Italian Anthropological Association on September 4th
    Invited Speaker: Montgomery Slatkin (University of California at Berkeley, CA, USA)

There will also be a poster session, a public round table focused on science communication, and a very rich and surprising programme of social events.

During the congress, we will launch the first edition of the ‘Luigi Luca Cavalli Sforza Award’,
established by the Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology. Such an initiative recognizes eminent personalities in the research fields of evolutionary biology. In this first edition the prize will be awarded to Montgomery Slatkin. The ceremony and the Cavalli Sforza Lecture will take place on September 4th in the ‘Galileo Galilei’ Main Hall.

The Society is also pleased to offer a crash course in Molecular Clocks using BEAST, on the morning of September 1st, at the Botanical Garden.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Padova,
