Welcome to the Evolutionary Demography Society’s 7th Annual Meeting! The Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics is excited to invite everyone, both physical and virtual participants, to the UNESCO's World Heritage Site of Røros, Norway, from 6 to 11 October 2020.
The theme of this year’s meeting will be Evolutionary Demography under Global Change, where participants will have the opportunity to present their latest research as well as develop new collaborations, ideas and projects on the interplay between demography and evolutionary biology.
To allow a wide audience across the globe in times like these, the meeting will combine physical and virtual attendance.
What will happen?
Keynote speakers will give 25 + 5 min presentations covering the latest advances in the field.
All participants are encouraged to present their research through lightning talks (5 + 2 min questions) and/or posters.
There will be two special sessions:
There will also be workshops. If you have an idea for a workshop, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Lastly, it would be a shame for any participant to leave without getting to know Røros. There will be social activities for physical participants, like a tour through the town or a more adventurous activity like dog sledding, as well as social activities for virtual participants. Find more information on the Activities page.

Norwegian University of
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology is Norway's largest university, with headquarters in Trondheim. The university has an international focus and four main strategic research areas which include Energy, Health, Oceans and Sustainability. NTNU also hosts six Norwegian centers of excellence, including the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics.
Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics
This year’s meeting is organized by the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics (CBD). The research at CBD is aimed at understanding the causes and consequences of changes of biological diversity in time and space, within the fields of population ecology, evolutionary biology and community dynamics.
