On Wednesday 22 April 2015, Methods in Ecology and Evolution will be celebrating its 5th Anniversary. Methods is the British Ecological Society’s youngest journal and over the past five years it has established itself as the leading publication for methodological advances for both the ecological and evolutionary academic communities.

For those of you who can’t make it to either the first half or the Symposium in London (Looking Forward to the Next Five Years) or the second half in Calgary (Next Generation Ecology and Evolution: Genomics Tools for the Study of Ecology, Evolution, and Biomonitoring) we will be livestreaming every presentation.

What You Need to Watch the Livestream

Our 5th Anniversary Symposium will be streamed though Livestream.com. This platform is optomised for all browsers as well as Android and iOS devices. So all that you need is a computer, tablet or smart phone and the ability to connect to the internet.

The livestream of this event is completely free. You do not need to register or sign up for an account. All you need to do is visit the livestream page our website and click play.

You can start watching at any point (between 10:30am and midnight in the UK or from 03:30am and 17:00pm in Calgary) and keep streaming the Symposium for as long as you like. If you would like to choose some specific presentations to watch, you can see a full list of the talks here.

While you are watching the livestream, you can also interact with the Symposium. We will be taking questions from Twitter throughout the day. If you would like to ask a question to any of the presenters, just tweet it using the hashtag #Methods5th before the end of their talk. We can’t guarantee that all questions will be asked, but we will try to ask as many as we can.

We are also asking anyone who watches the livestream to complete a short survey for the British Ecological Society. This survey is anonymous, optional and shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. It will be available from 10:30 am (UK time) on 22 April.

We hope that you are able to join us to celebrate Methods in Ecology and Evolution‘s 5th Anniversary.
