Who should join?

We encourage all Diploma, Master and PhD students, who are interested in any aspect of evolutionary biology to join the meeting. Traditionally, the meeting is organized by the DZG (German Zoological Society), but botanists, mycologists, microbiologists and theoretical biologists are equally welcome. The meeting will provide an optimal opportunity to give a talk about your Diploma, Master or PhD thesis. In addition to that, it is a great way to find out what other fellow evolutionary biologists are working on, and perhaps to find out where you would like to do your PhD or Postdoc.

Accommodation

There are number of hotels in Freiburg, and two youth hostels. When you choose your accommodation, you should choose one that is either close to the zoological institute, or close to a tram/bus-station. Central Freiburg is relatively small and manageable; almost everything can be reached on foot or by bike. There is a renting service for bikes next to the train station, so if you are feeling sportive and if the weather is fair which is likely during the Freiburger spring season this could be a nice alternative to public transit.
