Meeting StEvE 2022

Friday 28 October

This year’s annual symposium of Students in Ecology and Evolution (Meeting StEvE) will take place on Friday, 28 October 2022. Meeting StEvE is THE avenue for PhD students of the EVEREST graduate school to present and discuss their work through a series of oral and poster sessions. Advanced MSc students and early-stage post-doctoral students from EVEREST member groups are also welcome to present their work.

The meeting is open to all interested students (any level) and faculty, including those who do not belong to any EVEREST member group.

We will follow Coronavirus-related restrictions closely, and ensure the meeting adheres to current hygiene standards. In any case, the Meeting StEvE 2022 will take place in a hybrid format, allowing in-person and remote attendance, as well as in-person and remote oral contributions. In case of restrictions to the maximum number of participants, we will prioritize in-person attendance to EVEREST students.

Further details regarding remote access attendance and participation will be distributed and updated based on how the "corona situation" unfolds in the course of the future months.


Alte Aula, Münzgasse 30, 72070 Tübingen + online (via Zoom).


The Meeting StEvE will comprise a keynote lecture, oral presentations, and a poster session (exact formats pending hygiene standards).

Keynote lecture

This year’s keynote speaker will be Prof. Eline Lorenzen of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Prof. Eline Lorenzen investigates the dynamics of past and present populations of mammal species, in both marine and terrestrial environments, using ancient bimolecular analysis (including palaeogenomics and stable isotope analysis). 

Her talk entitled "Arctic marine mammals in a post-Arctic world" will be part of the Hilgendorf Lecture series.


There is no registration fee, but all participants (both contributors and attendees) should register by 30 September 2022 by using the meeting registration form.

Abstract submission

Abstract submission is done using the meeting registration form, by selecting the option to submit an abstract after registration. All contributors (poster or oral) must submit their abstract by 27 September 2022. Please provide your contribution's Title, Author(s), Affiliation(s), and Abstract (150 words maximum).

Presentation style

Both in-person and remote oral contributions are 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of discussion. Presentation files will be projected from a Windows PC. The presentation should be submitted prior to the meeting as PowerPoint (.pptx) or PDF files — we prefer the latter to avoid compatibility problems.
In-person posters (pending Coronavirus-related regulations) should be of size A0 oriented vertically (1189 mm x 841 mm), and will be presented during a dedicated poster session with snacks and drinks. A remote-only option for poster presentations will be prepared as well.

We will provide details of the format for remote contributions (both posters and presentations) in due course.

Meeting announcement poster

To promote the event, all research groups are urged to share the meeting announcement poster electronically, as well as by printing and posting it on their advertising board.

Organizing team

This year’s StEvE meeting is organised by the PhD students in the Biogeology group.
