Contributed talks (20 minutes each) are expected to be related to the subject areas listed below. However, we will be ready and willing to consider any submission of a potentially high scientific merit which does not exactly fall into this list.


Apart from individual talks, we also welcome proposals for minisymposia. A minisymposium is going to be about two hours in duration and will normally include either four talks of 20 minutes or three talks of 30 minutes. The minisymposium proposal should include a brief description of its goals and a list of suggested speakers. It is the responsibility of the minisymposium organisers to contact the suggested speakers and to discuss with them the conditions of their participation and details of their talks.


In order to encourage a wide participation of PhD students as well as early career researchers, there will be a poster session organised during the conference. We expect some financial support for PhD students based on UK.


The scope of the conference is outlined by (but not necessarily limited to) the following topics:

  • Evolutionary Game Theory
  • Evolutionary Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases
  • Virulence Management
  • Evolution of Macromolecules
  • Models of Somatic Evolution of Cancer
  • Population and Quantitative Genetics
  • Evolutionary Population Ecology
  • Biodiversity and Origin of Species
  • Models in Behavioural Ecology
  • Solving Social Dilemmas
  • Models of Evolution of Culture and Human Behaviour
  • Human Origins
  • Experimental Evolution

The full conference program will be available after 15 March 2017.

Themed issue

Currently we are negotiating the possibility to publish a Themed Issue on modelling biological evolution in Bulletin of Mathematical Biology and Theoretical Population Biology. A contribution article to this issue can be either directly related to the conference presentation/poster or can be based on some other interesting work in the given field.


To register, please send a message to Andrew Morozov with a title and a brief abstract of your presentation (PDF or Word, no more than one page), clearly indicating whether it is intended to be a talk or a poster. If there is more than one author, please indicate very clearly who is actually going to present the work.

If you are willing to contribute to the Themed Issue related to this conference, please mention this clearly in the registration form indicating the provisional title of your contribution and providing a short description (2-3 sentences).
