Evolution 2015 is the joint annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE), the Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB), and the American Society of Naturalists (ASN). The meeting this year will be held on June 26-30 at the Casa Grande Resort in Guarujá, Brazil. Evolution 2015 in Brazil will be a great opportunity for the international scientific community of Evolutionary Biologists to interact with Brazilians to foster scientific cooperation programs and discuss their research.

This meeting is the premier annual opportunity for sharing scientific research related to evolution. Symposia presentations, concurrent contributed papers, and poster sessions will be presented by the 1,500 expected participants. Product and service providers will contribute to the meeting through their exhibits.

Social activities will include an opening reception, mixers with each evening poster session, and a Super Social and Award Ceremony on the last night of the conference. All of these mixers and receptions are included with registration.

Em função de recursos que conseguimos da CAPES e CNPq, conseguimos um desconto especial para brasileiros e estrangeiros que residam no Brasil. Para fazer uso deste desconto, faça sua inscrição e coloque o voucher "Brazil1" se for pesquisador, pós-doc, ou aluno de pós-graduação, ou "Brazil2" se for aluno de graduação. Os brasileiros que já fizeram a inscrição podem solicitar o extorno tanto por PayPal, o que vai nos tomar um certo tempo, quanto diretamente durante o congresso.

The price for Brazilians or Latin-Americans living in Brazil will have a discount because of support from governmental granting agencies.

 

If you are only coming to Brazil for the meeting, you would only need a tourist visa!

This is a message from the president of the Society for the Study of Evolution:

HEALTH ADVISORY FOR TRAVEL TO BRAZIL

Travelers to Brazil should check with their health care providers at least 4-6 weeks prior to departure to determine what vaccinations or medications they should have.  General guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can be found on at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/brazil.

Travelers should also be aware that both malaria and dengue fever occur in some regions of Brazil and the current drought has increased the incidence of dengue in the Sao Paulo area. Precautions should be taken to avoid mosquito bites, especially if you plan excursions beyond the meeting venue.  Both the US State Department and the CDC provide health advisories for travelers For up-to-date information see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/alertswarnings.html  and  http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices

I look forward to seeing you at the meeting this summer! Best wishes,

Daphne Fairbairn, President
