Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM)
The Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting is a two-day event organised by NERN and NECOV (Dutch - Flemish Ecological Society) and supported by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
The set-up of the 2012 meeting is in accordance with previous years, which were a great success with over 350 participants. Each day starts with a plenary session in which a Dutch and an international world leader present their view on a specific topic in ecology. Accordingly, parallel sessions will be held covering the wide field of ecology. A call for sessions topics has been sent in July and based on this call over 20 suggestions have been made. Currently the selection of tpics and listing of the full programme of the Parallelsesions is taking place. This is done by the organising committee (Jacintha Ellers (VU), Rampal Ettienne (RUG), Lourens Poorter (WU), Martijn Egas (UVA), Wolf Mooij (NIOO), Merel Soons (UU) and Jaap van der Meer (NIOZ, Chair))
Besides oral presentations, time will be reserved for poster sessions and discussion.
As in previous years, various prizes will be awarded at the end of the meeting: the Poster Prize, the Best MSc Project Proposal (both awarded by NECOV) and the NERN Best Paper Award. Call for these awards will follow soon.
