MEE Conference "Modeling in Ecology and Evolution": registration is open

This MEE 2023 conference targets early career researchers (CDC - Master students, PhD students and post-docs) in the fields of ecology and evolution. It aims to promote exchanges within the rich research ecosystem of Montpellier, in a friendly and informal way. This year, CDC from the CIBIO laboratory in Porto, Portugal, will also attend as part of the H2020 Teaming "Biopolis" program (contribution of UMR CEFE and UM).


The first two days (May 24-25, 2023) will be devoted to papers and posters presented by the CDC (researchers at the beginning of their career), as well as to some longer plenary lectures by researchers with more professional experience. The morning of May 26 will be devoted to other activities that will be communicated later, as well as the exact location (in Montpellier) and satellite social events.

Registration as a speaker or as a listener is free of charge but mandatory via this registration form.

Oral communications should last 20 minutes (15 minutes of presentation + 5 minutes of questions). The scientific committee may propose to redirect oral communications to posters.

It is also possible to register to attend the conference free of charge even without presenting a poster or a slide show, but as the number of participants is limited, the first come first served principle will be applied.

Cancers – Exposure

One out of three French people is affected by cancer today, and one out of two cancers is "cured". Through this exhibition, you will have an overview of the disease in France, the keys to better understand it, its treatments, and the means of prevention. The Cité des sciences et de l'industrie deals with a major public health issue and hopes to take up the challenge of lifting the taboo on this pathology that concerns us all. The exhibition is produced in partnership with INCa and Inserm, with the contribution of INRAE.

42% of cancers are linked to our lifestyles and behaviors ... 4/10 can be avoided by changing our lifestyle

The exhibition begins with cancers in the history of the evolution of species, it deciphers the mechanism of carcinogenesis, explains the deflagration that the patient feels at the time of the announcement. He then discusses the knowledge and treatments provided by research before ending with the political dimension of cancer.

In the "research" section:

  • Listen to Joël Doré, INRAE research director, give an update on the links between microbiota and cancer;

  • Read "Everything you always wanted to know about cancer", with information provided by the NACRe cancer research network, in which INRAE participates along with other partners.

During the school vacations, you will be able to discuss with scientists present in the exhibition.

Exhibition present until August 8, 2023
