Winter Semester 2020/21 - Tuesdays at 12:15 - in Zoom
The EvE Seminar is the main research seminar of the Institute of Evolution and Ecology at University of Tübingen, with contributions from all EvE groups. It covers a broad range of topics in ecology and evolutionary biology, usually with about half of the talks by researchers from our institute and half by invited colleagues from Germany and abroad.
The seminar is currently organised by Madalin Parepa and Oliver Bossdorf. Write us if you want to be added to the mailing list (announcements and zoom links), and follow us on https://twitter.com/EvoEcoTuebingen!

- Please keep your presentation to around 35 minutes so that there is still some time for discussion.
- Keep in mind that you have a rather broad audience, with a mix of students and more experienced reseachers, and people from different disciplines. Don't assume too much, explain terms, avoid specialized jargon.
- Shortly introduce the speaker at the beginning of the seminar.
- Encourage everybody, in particular students, to ask questions. In Zoom, questions can be indicated through "raised hands" or posed directly in the chat. Try to keep an overview and call people individually. If there are students and/or women with questions, give them priority.
- Particularly for external speakers: get in touch with them prior to the seminar, organise chats with students and postdocs, and organise dinner. Ask other EvE groups that may be interested to participate.
