Symp ad w_bannerMethods in Ecology and Evolution, the British Ecological Society’s youngest journal, turns five this year. To celebrate we will be holding a joint Symposium – beginning in the UK and concluding in Canada.

We will be hearing what’s in store for the future from young, international researchers including the first winner of the Robert May Young Investigator’s Prize and some of the journal’s Associate Editors. Topics that will be discussed include model selection, data analysis, R and more.

You can find out more about the Symposium, including information on all of the talks on our website. If you have any questions that aren’t answered there, feel free to get in touch (

If you haven’t registered to attend the Symposium yet, there is still time. Be quick though, our Early Bird prices are coming to an end on Friday 20 March.

You can register for our 5th Anniversary Symposium HERE.

We understand that for a lot of our dedicated readers, it simply won’t be possible to get to either Calgary or London. Therefore, we will be live streaming the whole event. Every speaker’s talk, from the UK and from Canada, will be available LIVE – online and free of charge. We will be releasing more information about the live stream closer to the date, so keep an eye out for it here and on our website (link above).
