March 1st-3rd, 2016, UCL: Meet the Expert Prof. Michel Milinkovitch (Univ Geneva, Switzerland) for his work on “The EvoDevo & Physics of skin appendages & colours in vertebrates

Added Tuesday 9 February 2016

Dear PhD students and postdocs in Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution,

You have voted a few months ago for your favourite experts to meet in 2015-2016. Here are the results: our first Expert for 2016 is Prof. Michel Milinkovitch from the University of Geneva, Switzerland. His “Meet the Expert” seminar on “The EvoDevo & Physics of skin appendages & colours in vertebrates” will take place on Thursday March 3rd, 2015, 14:00-16:00. Participation is free but you need to register before February 26th by sending an email to Brigitte Ferauge (brigitte.ferauge@uclouvain.be).

In addition, to prepare his venue, Prof. Milinkovitch has recommended the reading of the four articles that you can download from the BDIV website: https://www.uclouvain.be/530276.html. There will be a "preparation meeting" for PhD students and postdocs supervised by Prof. Caroline Nieberding at UCL on Tuesday March 1st from 14.00 to 16.00 where we will discuss those articles. This is the occasion to prepare relevant questions for Prof. Millinkovitch. Please register before Monday Feb 28th to confirm your participation to the preparation meeting by writing to brigitte.ferauge@uclouvain.be. The room for discussion will be specified to participants.


For info, two additional MET seminars will be organized in the next months (dates pending):

- Prof Kevin LALAND (University of St Andrews, UK) on “Animal behaviour and evolution, animal social learning, innovation and intelligence”
- Dr. Ben Woodcock (NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, UK) on “Reconciling intensive agricultural management with maintenance and enhancement of native biodiversity and ecosystem services”

All the best,
Caroline Nieberding.
