The main speakers are the PhD students of the program and three invited speakers:
The SeeDS (Symposium of Ecology and Evolution Doctoral Students) is an engaging and stress-free meeting organized by the graduate students for the participating graduate students in all disciplines of ecology and evolutionary biology to discuss their current research, meet new colleagues from across Switzerland and abroad and have the opportunity to expand their research network.
This year's meeting will take place at the Museum of Natural History in Neuchatel. The program consists of selected number of presentations from PhD students, poster presentation sessions, talks by three invited speakers including lunch and social dinner. We will conclude the meeting with an organized guided-tour of the Climate Change Exhibition "Poles, feu la glaçe" at the Natural History Museum and a private social apero and dinner held at the Café du Cerf.
This year, we have selected our invited speakers from both academia and industry to provide the students with a broad scientific presentation on ecology and evolution as well as talks focusing on the broad spectrum of challenges faced by PhD graduates to take on a career in both academia and industry.
