Message de nos amis de la BES:
After the excellent success of our  2014 Annual Meeting in Lille, we are pleased to announce our call for Thematic Topics and Workshops for our 2015 Annual Meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Each year, we highlight special Thematic Topics in our Annual Meeting programme; they provide a forum for the discussion of timely and/or important questions, a local ‘flavour’ and encourage integration among disciplines. Find out how to submit your proposal here.

We welcome submissions from any and all aspects of ecology but, this year, we specifically encourage proposals linked to upland ecology, soils, rewilding, ecology and energy and ecology and policy.  We receive in excess of 30 proposals each year for between five and seven slots. All submissions are judged by a diverse academic panel.

Workshops are an integral part of our Annual Meeting and provide a great opportunity for professional development. Applications should involve at least one of the following interactive activities: training, communication, outreach and policy.
Examples include mathematical or statistical training, policy discussions or debates leading to papers/statements, funding workshops, publishing and career development.
Workshops typically last 1 – 2 hours, adding significant structure to the meeting and offer access to aspects of ecology not found in posters or oral presentations. They should have a clear aim, include audience participation and must not just be a set of talks or presentations. Download the forms and submit your proposal here.

We look forward to hearing from you.
