12 – 15 December 2021
Liverpool International Conference Centre, UK

This December we invite you to join over 1,200 ecologists from around the world at Ecology Across Borders 2021, a joint Annual Meeting BES-SFE² 

After so much has been disrupted by the pandemic, we look forward to welcoming delegates in person at this joint annual meeting. Virtual conference passes will also be available so that ecologists outside the conference centre can join many of the sessions online.

Check out the program !

Registration and abstract submission will open in the coming weeks.

We are following all the latest advice to guide our preparations and enable the ecological community to gather in-person with confidence. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found on the BES website.
