We would hereby like to invite you all to join the yearly NVTB meeting. Because of the current covid-19 pandemic we decided for a single day online meeting on May the 14th starting at 9:30 and ending around 16:00. We can already announce our two keynote speakers: Dr. Like Fokkens (UvA) will talk about “Genome evolution in F. oxysoprum”. Prof. Dr. Rampal Etienne (RUG) will talk about “Next-generation Island Biogeography”.
We cordially invite both NVTB members and non-NVTB members to join the meeting & contribute either a short or a long scientific presentation. Participation is free of charge. We hope you will spread the word amongst your colleagues. Registration will close on the 5th of May.
You can sign-up for the meeting through this form.
Through the sign-up form you can also let us know if you would like to give a talk. Do note that the number of talks is limited, speakers that are selected will be notified on the 7th of May. All participants will receive a google-meet link to join the meeting in due time. Directly after the meeting we will hold the general assembly, for which all NVTB members are invited.
We hope to see many of you online.
Kind regards, Kirsten ten Tusscher, Timo van Eldijk, Jeroen Meijer
board of the NVTB
