Our monthly seminars are centred around the aims of the network with the goal of facilitating discussion and knowledge exchange between all corners of speciation research.
The sessions are open to everyone. In order to maximise the geographic diversity of attendees, we will alternate between two time slots on consecutive months: 5 pm CET and 9 am CET.
In addition to promoting scientific integration, the IOS network aims to foster diversity and inclusion across the field of speciation research. Please help us to spread news of the seminar series to anyone who may be interested, especially those in countries that are typically underrepresented in scientific discourse.
Details of upcoming seminars be announced by email, on Twitter (@Speciation_net) and on this page.
People who wish to automatically receive news of upcoming seminars, and other network activities, are encouraged to join the IOS network mailing list.
The next seminar on the theme of “Paleontological views of micro and macroevolution”.
As speakers we welcome Susana Magallón (UNAM, Mexico) and Michael Landis (WUSTL, USA).
UPDATE: This session (originally scheduled for 06 June 2023) has been postponed and will be rescheduled for September. Apologies for the late change of plan.
The first hour is dedicated to talks and questions, and the final 30 minutes is dedicated to a discussion session. Talks (but not discussion sessions) will be recorded and will be made available on our Youtube Channel.
