DZG graduate meetinges in evolutionary biology have a long tradition in offering students the opportunity to present and discuss their research.
Date & Venue
September 08–09, 2015, University of Graz, Austria
HS 06.03, Universitätsplatz 6; ground floor.
Note that this year’s graduate meeting is a satellite symposium to the annual DZG (German Zoological Society) conference, which is on September 9th-12th at the same location. Use the opportunity to cover two meetings in one trip!
