Scale Meeting 2019

Southern California Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics Meeting

October 19, 2019

The SCalE Meeting program is now online! Registration for talks is now closed, but we will accept all poster presentations until the day of the meeting. If you want a lightning talk, please register before Friday, and space permitting, you will be given a lightning talk slot.

The Southern California Evolutionary Genetics & Genomics Meeting is starting up again! It will be held on October 19, 2019 at UC Irvine.

The SCalE Meeting is a free, one day academic meeting on evolutionary genetics.The format is a combination of two 30 minute keynotes, 15 minute talks, 1 minute lightning talks, and posters. Coffee and lunch will be provided. Attendees typically hail from a triangle with Santa Barbara, Riverside, and San Diego as points, but we've had attendees from as far afield as Arizona and North Carolina.

This time, we're experimenting with lightning talks. Depending on submissions and demand, we'd like to select several (up to 15) posters for "lightning talks". These talks will be comprised of 1 slide and will last one minute. They will serve as advertisements for the selected posters. Thus, those who accept invitations to give lightning talks will also present posters. We hope the demand is high enough. If you like this idea, then check the "lightning talk" box in your registration!
