Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting


Conference Centre "De Werelt", Lunteren, The Netherlands


Each year in February, the Netherlands Ecological Research Network (NERN) organises her annual conference, the Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM). This conference is particularly geared towards people working in the field of ecology and/or evolution. It aims to strengthen the network of ecologists in the Netherlands, Belgium, and surrounding countries and provides an overview of the work carried out by the people in the network. The NAEM meeting is two full days, each day consisting of a plenary session, in which a Dutch/Flemish and an international world leader present their view on a specific topic in ecology or evolution, two sets of five parallel sessions (including more workshop-like sessions), and a poster session. Parallel sessions generally consists of 6 oral presentations, thus leading to a total of approximately 125 oral presentations. On average, we have about 75-100 scientific poster presentations during the meeting. On the first evening, a more relaxed and thought-provoking presentation is generally scheduled. The NAEM meeting is financially supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

The coming February will be the 16th edition of the NAEM meeting. Note that this year the conference will have a main theme BIODIVERSITY: Bending the curve from theory to practice. 

Registration will be open at the beginning of October.
