Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting

Held in February of each year

Conference Centre De Werelt, Lunteren

The Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting is a two-day event organised by NERN and NecoV (Dutch - Flemish Ecological Society) and supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Each day consists of:

  • A plenary session, in which a Dutch and an international world leader present their view on a specific topic in ecology
  • Two sets of four parallel sessions
  • A Poster session and discussion

Since 2009, two prizes are annually awarded during the meeting: the NecoV Poster Prize and the NERN Best Paper Award.

So far, there have been nine annual meetings (2008 - 2016). Therefore, the next upcoming NAEM meeting will be a very special one, to celebrate the 10th edition. It will involve some very high-ranking internationally esteemed scientists. The next edition of the Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM) will be held on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 February 2017, so please book these dates in your agenda. Registration for this meeting is now open, and so is the call for proposals for parallel sessions!! Click here for more information.
