The symposium aims to be a regular retreat for PhD students in any ecological discipline. The symposium provides a great opportunity for students carrying out their thesis in a Catalan research centre to share and receive valuable feedback, on both their ecological work and presentation skills. The symposium will also be a space to network and socialize with other students and seniors.
A panel of three prominent ecologists will evaluate oral presentations in a relaxed and constructive atmosphere. These researchers will also give a plenary talk during the symposium. We are happy to announce Hanna Kokko (University of Zurich), Fernando Valladares (MNCN-CSIC, Madrid) and Rohan Arthur (Nature Conservation Foundation, India) as the evaluators and keynote speakers for this first edition.
