The biennial ESEB congress is one of the largest conferences in evolutionary biology with about 1400 – 1700 participants. The congress usually takes place in August in Europe.
Upcoming ESEB Congresses
There will be no congress in 2023 due to the postponed congress in 2022!
In 2025, the congress will take place in August in Barcelona, Spain, organized by Toni Gabaldón and hosted by the the Spanish Society for Evolutionanary Biology. For further details please visit the congress website at https://eseb2025.com/ .
