International Biogeography Society Early Career Conference 2014

7-10 January 2014
Canberra, Australia

The IBS Early Career Conference is an intimate forum (up to ~100 attendees) for acquiring skills, sharing knowledge, and networking in Biogeography.  The meeting is designed specifically to provide opportunities for young biogeographers to meet and mix with each other and with experienced researchers in the field. Situated in Canberra, Australia, the meeting is intended to increase accessibility of IBS events while maintaining the same feel, high standards, and international appeal of the biennial conferences.

Travel awards are available to students through open competition. For more information see:

The meeting covers the breadth of biogeography, with focal topics and confirmed keynote speakers including:
Species distributions across space and time
Dr Michael Kearney, University of Melbourne
Dr Catherine Graham, Stony Brook University
Biodiversity turnover across spatial scales
Dr Simon Ferrier, CSIRO
Dr Matthew Fitzpatrick, University of Maryland
Advances in phylogenetic methods for biogeography
Prof Craig Moritz, Director of CBA, ANU-CSIRO
Dr Hélčne Morlon, École Polytechnique

Workshops will be held on the following topics:
Introduction to R for biogeographers
BioGeoBEARS: biogeographic tools in R
Modeling turnover using generalized dissimilarity modeling
Concepts and methods for modeling species distributions

Target date for registration is 31 August 2013.

The meeting is convened by the IBS (http://escholarship.org/uc/fb), the ANU Centre for Macroevolution and Macroecology (http://macroevoeco.com/), and the ANU-CSIRO Centre for Biodiversity Analysis (http://cba.anu.edu.au/), and sponsored by Frontiers of Biogeography – the Open Access society journal for biogeography (http://escholarship.org/uc/fb).
