Annual meetings

GENECO arranges two annual meetings, a winter and a summer meeting, on selected topics where you get the opportunity to interact with invited speakers, gain novel skills and learn more about career possibilities inside and outside Academia. We have been very fortunate and have been able to attract top-ranked international researchers within genomic ecology to these meetings.

The summer meetings are held at the end of the summer and they are 1.5-day events inclusive of an overnight stay.

The winter meetings are held in Lund at the beginning of February and they are single-day events.

Winter Meeting 2023

Next year’s GENECO Winter Meeting (whole day including dinner) will be in Lund at Kulturen on Wednesday 15 February 2023. The theme will be  “Application of new cool methods” and two speakers have been invited. They are Fabien Burki who uses single-cell sequencing to work on the evolutionary origins of plastids and Arild Husby who study epigenetics in wild bird species. We are further aiming at inviting a researcher who uses CRISPR-CAS to study evolution on wild animal populations.
We will soon send out invitations and registration forms.
