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, 2021, 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 invited keynote speaker and some invited talks. We will provide attendees with individual links to all talks, that we will host using Zoom.
Although we are not accepting abstract submissions for oral presentations, we are accepting them for online poster presentations. We will host the online poster sessions via Discord.

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.
