Final Program Oikos Meeting in Gothenburg

The conference will take place at the Konferenscentrum Wallenberg in Gothenburgh January 31 to February 1 , with workshops starting January 30. Here is a link to find the way to Konferenscentrum Wallenberg:

For those that have registered, there is a Icebreaker 30 January (Sjöfartsmuseet Akvariet) including food and possibility to buy drinks. Here is a link to find the way there:

About the conference:  We have confirmed 5 keynote speakers:
-Helmut Hillebrand, University of Oldenburg, “Are there thresholds for biodiversity change?”
-Isla Myers-Smith, University of Edinburgh, “The causes and consequences of biodiversity change in the warming Arctic”
-Ulrika Candolin, University of Helsinki, “Behavioural responses to a changing world”
-Sam Dupont, University of Gothenburg, “A question of time: How time modulates the response to marine global environmental changes”
-Simon Creer, University of Bangor, "Exploring the spatio-temporal relevance of eukaryotic eDNA traces across diverse biomes"

Workshops: There will be four workshops taking place in the afternoon on January 30, in association to the Swedish Oikos Meeting in Gothenburg; 1. Incorporating Arctic grazers into ecosystem models: a way forward, 2. SBDI user workshop - How to publish your metabarcoding data, and 3. SBDI user workshop - Modelling the distribution of alien species in Sweden, 4. Data visualization.

Info for speakers and poster presenters: Please send a link of your presentation ,with your name and the file name, to the email adress where the abstract was registered as early as possible, but no later that 8.00 the day you are presenting. Please bring your poster at 8.30 January 31 and put it up in the destinated place.
