The II Virtual Meeting of Systematics, Biogeography, and Evolution (SBE): The Research of Biodiversity and the Diversity of Researchers (also known as SBE meeting 2021) will occur on June 19-23, 2021. A five-day event, Saturday to Wednesday, completely free of charge, and 100% online.
Come with us to celebrate the richness of variety.
The SBE meeting 2021's primary purpose is to reach people who usually have economic restrictions to attend most of the scientific meetings on different areas within evolutionary biology.
The event will take place on June 19-23, 2020, via Zoom sessions. The official time-zone will be UTC-4. The language of the talks is eligible by the speakers (from English, Spanish or Portuguese). But slides/presentations and multimedia must be in English.
The event is divided into different symposia covering a wide variety of disciplines. Each symposium will have one keynote speaker and some invited talks. We also host online poster sessions, via Discord.
We are currently working on defining the different symposia and the schedule of the SBE Meeting 2021.
Special symposium in collaboration with UNC Charlotte's BRC
The SBE meeting 2021 will be hosting a special symposium from the Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC) of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNC Charlotte).
The Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC) focuses on genomics and computing technologies as applied to microbiology, biological and human diversity, and health. The BRC has domestic and international partners for joint research and training in academia, medicine, industry, and government. We will discuss the application of computing and empirical technologies synergistically. We will also present projects focusing on infectious diseases, including emergent viruses.
We would love to work together in celebrating the richness of variety
The SBE Meeting 2021 is looking for sponsors to offer awards to our best online student presentations. Please contact us.
From July 28 to July 30, 2020, we hosted the I Meeting of Systematics, Biogeography, and Evolution (SBE). The theme for the first meeting was "A Joint Effort in the Coronavirtual Era." In 2020, the first meeting of SBE had over 1,200 attendees (52% female participants, 47% male, 1% other) from 38 countries. We are aiming to make the SBE meeting 2021 even bigger and more inclusive.
