The Midwest Ecology and Evolution Conference is an annual migratory conference that is student hosted and attended from institutions located in the Midwestern United States. The conference supplies an excellent opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present data in a regional setting, and to be able to network with other students from nearby universities. The conference also presents an excellent opportunity to practice speaking in a low pressure atmosphere compared to large, national conferences, and is more easily accessible for universities without funding for travel to large conferences.
Both oral and poster presentations will be scheduled over two days in addition to plenary speakers. There will also be a banquet dinner on Saturday evening, which will give an opportunity to socialize with other students from nearby universities, as well as with the plenary speakers.
Specific schedule of presentations will be released closer to the conference.
