Ontario Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution Colloquium

OE3C 2013: May 2-4 in London, ON

Every year for the past 43 years, undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and faculty from across Ontario and beyond have come together to present their research at the Ontario Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution Colloquium (OE3C). This graduate student organized conference is a great way for young researchers to present their work in a constructive and collegial environment, and for faculty to recruit promising new students. OE3C welcomes research posters and talks on diverse topics such as evolution, genetics, psychology, conservation, and environmental science, as well as ecology and behaviour.

This year, Western University is hosting the OE3C. We invite undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and faculty to present their research in May 2013!


OE3C 2014 will be hosted by the University of Guelph!
