Abstract

The Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquium (RMSC) has been running yearly since 2013 and aims at training young researchers in Ecology, as well as promoting their networking and debate with invited lecturers as well as among themselves.

Description / Information

The use of omics techniques has spread rapidly across the field of Ecology and Evolution during the last decade, but there is substantial work ahead to link the obtained results with the existent ecological theory. The course will cover different environments (marine, terrestrial, host associated) as well as organismal sizes (from microbes to plants and animals), thus becoming an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers with similar questions, but working in fields that seldom communicate between each other. The Colloquium will be an excellent opportunity to foster learning and discussions on the relevance of an interdisciplinary perspective in Ecology & Evolution. 

The Colloquium will be structured in 4 sessions. Each session consist of a combination of lectures, and group discussion.

Objectives

During the 2018 Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquium we will make an effort to bridge this gap, aiming to inspire attending students to move from "what" to "why" when using omics approaches to study the ecosystem, as well as to frame their omics-based research in a theoretical ecological framework.

Target group

Doctoral students and early post-docs are encouraged to apply.

Fees

450€

10% discount for BIB members, SCB members (Societat Catalana de Biologia) and ISME members.

Two grants that cover fees and journey expenses for people from developing countries.
