Evolution Evolving: Process, Mechanism and Theory

Churchill College, University of Cambridge, UK

1-4 April 2019

Evolutionary biology is a vibrant field with a theoretical framework that itself evolves. The Evolution Evolving conference will focus on some emerging themes in the relationship between development and evolution. Topics include the evolutionary causes and consequences of developmental bias, plasticity, niche construction and extra-genetic inheritance – all of which contribute to an understanding of evolvability. The conference will feature a balanced program of talks and poster sessions spanning three days, and be a mix of empirical and theoretical work, as well as contributions to the history and philosophy of evolutionary biology.

Invited speakers include Alex Badyaev, Renee Duckworth, Laurel Fogarty, Jukka Jernvall, Alan C Love, Joanna Masel, Armin Moczek, Angela Potochnik, Sean Rice and Jessica Riskin.

Abstract submission closes 1 December 2018

Early bird registration closes 4 January 2019
