Dutch Life Sciences Congress 2019 - "Communication in Life"

Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 May 2019
The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is organising the very first edition of Life on 28 and 29 May 2019 in Bunnik: a brand new, unique, national congress covering the Dutch Life Sciences in the widest sense of the word. “Communication in Life” is the title of Life2019. This is spot-on: Communication is of vital importance for life, from the smallest (cell) to the largest level (planet).

International Conference - Innovative strategies for vector control – Progress in the Global Vector Control Response

Tuesday 11 - Thursday 13 June 2019
Triggered by the unprecedented global spread of dengue and chikungunya viruses and outbreaks of Zika virus disease and yellow fever in 2015-2016, the World Health Organization developed the Global Vector Control Response (GVCR) as a strategic guidance to countries and development agencies for the strengthening of vector control as a fundamental approach to preventing disease and responding to outbreaks. To evaluate the GVCR progress, and to discuss further strengthening of the approach, a conference will be held in Wageningen, the Netherlands, 11-13 June 2019. The conference will be organized jointly by WHO and Wageningen University & Research.

ISSPA congress 2019

Monday 17 - Thursday 20 June 2019
The 16th International Symposium on Soil and Plant Analysis (ISSPA 2019) will take place on 17-20 June, 2019, in Wageningen, the Netherlands. The symposium theme for 2019 is: Using tools to optimize plant production and quality: exploring the system approach.

NWO Talent Scheme Information Meeting (Veni, Vidi, Vici)

Thursday 20 June 2019
NWO organises information meetings for researchers who want to apply for a Veni, Vidi of Vici grant. Practical information is given and selection committee members, NWO secretaries and researchers who have already acquired a Veni, Vidi or Vici share their experiences during a Q&A session.

Aquatic microbiomes : Impact in natural and man-made ecosystems

Friday 28 June 2019
Microbes are at the basis of all life on earth, catalysing all major biogeochemical cycles thereby also providing many ecosystem services. In light of all global challenges and securing a sustainable future for our planet a more comprehensive understanding of the functioning of microbial communities and their interaction with the environment is necessary.

Meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) 2019

Tuesday 30 July - Saturday 3 August 2019
Madagascar ATBC 2019 aims to gather researchers, students, and professionals in a range of scientific disciplines from around the world in order to provide an effective tool towards this common effort to harmonize biodiversity conservation and human well-being. The theme chosen for this meeting is "Tropical biology and sustainable development".

Woodstoich 4 Workshop

Tuesday 13 - Saturday 17 August 2019
The Woodstoich workshop is a product-focused event for early career scientists working in the field of ecological / biological stoichiometry or those interested in integrating stoichiometry to their research, to be held at Flathead Lake Biological Station, Montana.

Wageningen Soil Conference

Tuesday 27 - Friday 30 August 2019
Wageningen University & Research is delighted to invite you to the fourth edition of the Wageningen Soil Conference. As in previous editions, the aim is to discuss the importance of soils. In the 2019 edition, the focus will be on “Understanding soil functions: from ped to planet”. To do this a new style of conference will be adopted, with traditional conference talks in the mornings, followed by a range of scientific and interactive topic masterclasses in the afternoons.

49th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland

Monday 9 - Friday 13 September 2019
The 49th Annual Meeting is held under the motto "Science meets practice" and aims to stimulate exchange between the academic ecological community and practitioners in order to find applied solutions to environmental problems. The Local Organising Committee covers a wide range of ecological topics, from classical organismic ecology, nature conservation issues and functional biodiversity research to air quality problems and research on biogeochemical processes in aquatic and terrestrial systems.

34th IAS meeting of Sedimentology

10 - 13 September 2019
The ambition of this meeting is to discuss, compare and promote researches able to cope with the societal changes from the specific perspective of the Sedimentology and Sedimentary Geology. We hope to involve in the meeting also scientific communities that, although not directly focused on sedimentology, use reconstruction of sedimentary processes and of stratigraphic record as main investigation tools, such as marine geology, volcanology, extraterrestrial geology, archaeology.


Tuesday 22 - Friday 25 October 2019
This conference is addressing the question: how do we proceed from here. How do we stop biodiversity loss? How can we speed up our research? How can we predict how climate change will affect global biodiversity? What new science do we need? What new techniques? What new policies?

10th World Conference Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP)

Monday 21 - Friday 25 October 2019
The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) will celebrate the 10th world conference anniversary in Germany: 10 years advancing ecosystem services science, policy and practice for a sustainable future. The ESP10 conference locations are the Leibniz University for the opening day on Monday, and the Hannover Congress Centre for the rest of the conference.

Current and Emerging Topics in Global Change Ecology of Plants

This conference organised by Taizhou University, will bring together world-leading experts on current and emergent topics in global change ecology of plants. All scientists and students working on any aspect of global change ecology are very welcome. 1-3 November 2019

SETAC Europe 14th Special Science Symposium - Soil Biodiversity: What do we know and how to protect

Tuesday 19 - Wednesday 20 November 2019
This symposium is a must for everyone who wants to gain more ecological knowledge useful in the assessment of soil eco(toxico) logical effects of chemical and non-chemical stressors, as well as to learn which ecological databases are available as reference for (large-scale) ecological assessments of effects, and to understand which novel experimental and modelling tools are currently available for an effective environmental risk assessment.

5th international symposium on Future of Butterflies in Europe

Dutch Butterfly Conservation (De Vlinderstichting) will host its 5th international symposium on Future of Butterflies in Europe – and this includes moths, of course. We invite you to join us in Wageningen, the Netherlands, 2-4 April 2020.
