Hi everyone, we would like to call your attention to the Symposium "Novel approaches in phylogenetic comparative methods for modelling trait evolution", which we are organizing in the context of the Evolution 2018 conference to be held next August in Montpellier.
The call for abstracts for the congress is open until January 15, please see below for details on the procedure for abstract submission and other important dates. We hope to see you in Montpellier, On behalf of the symposium organizers *Message from the Evolution 2018 organizers on how to submit abstracts:* We are happy to inform you that abstract submission is now open for next year's 2^nd Joint Congress on Evolutionary Biology in Montpellier, France (18-22 August 2018). Joint Congresses take place every six years and bring together four of the world's largest academic societies in the field of evolutionary biology: the European Society for Evolutionary Biology <http://eseb.org>, the American Society of Naturalists <http://www.amnat.org/>, the Society for the Study of Evolution <http://www.evolutionsociety.org/> and the Society of Systematic Biologists <http://www.systbio.org/>. Following the traditional format of ESEB conferences, *all contributed talks and posters will be submitted to specific symposia and selected on the basis of their abstract by symposium organizers*. The list of symposia is available at: http://evolutionmontpellier2018.org/symposia You can consult the list and submit an application to give a talk or poster to the symposia of your choice. You can submit applications to *up to two symposia* from the list. Note that if none of the topics covered by the thematic symposia matches your research, you have the option to submit your abstract to the �Open symposium� (also in the list). If you are a graduate student, you will have the opportunity to compete for the Mayr Award and Hamilton Award. These awards, organized respectively by the SSB and SSE, will be given to the presenter of an outstanding student talk at the Joint meeting in Montpellier. *If you want to compete for either of these awards, you have to submit your abstract to either the Mayr Award symposium or Hamilton Award symposium through the normal abstract submission procedure*. In order to allow as many participants as possible to present their work, and in line with ESEB tradition, *participants can submit only one abstract as the presenting author (i.e. the person who will present the talk/poster).* There is no limit, however, to the number of talks/posters a given person may coauthor. The symposium organizers of both your first and second choice will examine your proposal and make a selection. Symposium organizers will establish a priority list for abstracts accepted as oral communications and will offer the *option of presenting a poster instead of a talk* for the abstracts that do not fit in that list. Abstracts may be rejected if they are of insufficient quality, but our general policy is to accept most poster presentations. You will be chosen to present either a talk or a poster in a maximum of one symposium.
