In this meeting, we set a main theme “Contemporary Eco-Evo-Gen Interactions” aiming to have many fruitful and transdisciplinary discussions not only on evolution per se, but also on ecology, genetics, bioinformatics and more through plenary sessions, symposia, talk & poster sessions and independent courses for young scientists and public.
