Registration

Registration for Ecology Across Borders has now closed.

We have been pleased and surprised by the unprecedented interest in Ecology Across Borders.

But, due to the strict capacity of the meeting venue and level of bookings, we have been forced to take the unusual step of closing registration early.

Anyone who has had their talk or poster accepted will STILL have the opportunity to register by 17.00 (BST) 20 October; we will shortly contact you by email.

We do understand the impact of this decision and appreciate the disappointment this might cause. We always do our best to accommodate as many delegates as possible, but the strict venue capacity and health and safety implications mean we have to close registration.

We are proud of our programme and the efforts of the many people involved, so we encourage everyone to interact and follow the proceedings on Twitter with #EAB2017.

Included in the price are:

  • Access to all 4 plenary talks
  • Parallel sessions covering over 12 diverse topics each day
  • All lunchtime workshops
  • An opportunity to network with 1,200 international ecologists
  • Lunch on all 3 days
  • Tea and coffee breaks with cakes/biscuits
  • Welcome Mixer with drinks and nibbles
  • 2 poster sessions, each with drinks and nibbles
  • A variety of other social events throughout the event (refreshments provided)
  • Access to a wide range of global exhibitors
  • Conference event with dancing on the final evening
  • Downloadable conference ‘app’
  • Printed programme and conference bag
  • A friendly and inclusive environment

Member rates apply to all members of the three partner organisations; BES, GFÖ and NecoV.
Each organisation will crosscheck registrations with their records.
