ESHE Meeting 2016, Madrid
I would like to officially invite you to the 6th annual meeting of the European Society for the study of Human Evolution (ESHE) in Madrid, Spain. The meeting will take place at the Museo Arquelógico Regional in Alcalá de Henares in Madrid, Spain from 15-17th September, 2016, followed by an excursion to the Pinilla del Valle site on Sunday the 18th of September.
Meeting Registration is now open on our website at http://www.eshe.eu/meetings. If you would like to attend the closing party or excursion, please indicate this on your registration. Online registration closes on 31st July.
Members of the society receive a discounted rate on meeting registration and may also vote on important decisions regarding the future of the society. To become a member of ESHE, please fill out an application on our website: http://eshe.eu/membership. The deadline to receive membership rates for the meeting is 30th June. After this date only non-member rates will be available.
At this time we would like to invite those interesting in presenting at the meeting to submit abstracts for Podium, Pecha Kucha or Poster presentations. The deadline for abstract submission is Midnight (PST), Friday, 29th April. For submission guidelines and to upload your abstract, visit http://www.eshe.eu/abstract_submission
The growth of the Pecha Kucha format last year along with very positive member feedback at the annual meeting has encouraged us to expand the Pecha Kucha sessions again this year. Thus this year we will not have parallel sessions, and we hope to have even more Pecha Kucha presentations. To make this work smoothly, we require that the slides be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, 12 September. The ESHE Organizers will then set the slides to display for exactly 20 seconds each. We do not re-distribute or retain the presentations after the meeting. For more information on Pecha Kucha format, please visit: http://www.pechakucha.org/
We look forward to seeing you all in Madrid in September.
With best regards,
Jean-Jacques Hublin, President
On behalf of the board of the European Society for the study of Human Evolution.
