2023 Midwest Ecology & Evolution Conference


ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS CLOSED The Midwest Ecology and Evolution Conference (MEEC) is an annual regional conference hosted by different Midwestern institutions each year and is organized and directed entirely by graduate students. This conference is graduate and undergraduate student-focused, providing a professional atmosphere for students of all levels to interact with and learn from their peers. Previous conferences have drawn between 250 and 300 attendees from universities around the Midwest. Attendees are typically composed of 45% graduate students, 45% undergraduate students, and 10% faculty members. Submit your abstracts for the Midwest Ecology & Evolution Conference 2023. There are both posters and oral presentations. Oral presentations will be 10-12 minutes with 3-5 minutes for questions. Please try to keep abstracts under 300 words. The form will ask you for a typed version and pdf version of the abstract. This is for redundancy and efficient programming.
