Polish Evolutionary Conference in Poznań (2015)
Between 24th and 26th September 2015 we participated in organization of the 3rd Polish Evolutionary Conference (PEC) at the Biology Department of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. PEC is an annual event co-organized by the Committee for Evolutionary and Theoretical Biology, Polish Academy of Science together with different scientific centers in Poland.

The conference has been a success, more than 100 students and researchers from Poland and Europe attended the event.

On 24th September the official opening had place at the Biology Department, followed by two days of informative, cross-section evolutionary lectures and a poster session hosting more than 50 posters. Participants had also a chance to attend outstanding plenary talks by Grażyna Jasieńska, Eva Jablonka, Jochen Wolf and Ryszard Korona. The conference dinner with a jazz concert in the Blue Note Jazz Club ended the second day of the conference, providing an excellent opportunity for discussion, relax and networking.

We hope that the attendees had fully enjoyed the scientific level of the conference, the venue and the friendly atmosphere. It was a great pleasure for us to co-organize and host PEC III 2015 here in Poznan, and we all look forward for the 4th PEC edition in Bialystok, next year!
