Eighth Annual Yosemite Symbiosis Workshop 2018!

An integrative meeting of biologists focusing on symbiosis research
May 4-6, 2018
Sierra Nevada Research Institute, Wawona, Yosemite National Park

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Tadashi Fukami, Stanford University


Why: Our goal is to better integrate scientists that focus on symbiosis research. We plan to continue annual workshops at Yosemite as this site is both beautiful and secluded. This will be our 8th annual meeting and we have been consistently attracting scientists from all over the country and overseas.

Who: The meeting is small by design (~50 participants) and we seek to focus on scientists interested in both cooperation and symbiosis. In the past we have covered a range of symbiosis topics from ecology and evolution to molecular mechanisms in different model and non-model systems. We would like to make room for a diverse group of people so we will initially accept up to 3 lab members per group (including the PI) on a first come first served basis.

When: A welcome party will occur for everyone arriving on the evening of May 4. The talks and poster sessions will be held May 5-6, 2018.

Where: SNRI has a set of cabins in Wawona and all within a short walk of the conference room.

The registration is now OPEN, and priority will be given to those presenting.

Abstract and early bird registration will be due on March 16, 2018.
