British Ecological Society

Festival of Ecology BES

Join us in December as the largest and most welcoming ecology conference in Europe  – the British Ecological Society’s Annual Meeting – moves online this year. The online conference will have the great advantage of being accessible to even more people around the world. Join in wherever you are to share the latest research, meet new colleagues and develop your career.

While we would have loved to meet in person, having considered various options it is now clear that an online conference is the best way to prioritise health and safety and deal with the uncertainty brought by the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition, going digital allows us to run a large variety of activities over more days with the opportunity to catch up on things later that you might have missed. A real Festival of Ecology.
