Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting 2022

NAEM 2022

Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting 2022


Each year, the Netherlands Ecological Research Network (NERN) organises the Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM). The 2022 edition of NAEM has been postponed this winter and will now take place on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September.

The conference aims to strengthen the network of ecologists in the Netherlands, Belgium and surrounding countries, and provides an overview of the work carried out by the people in the network. The organising committee is chaired by NIOO's Dedmer van de Waal.

Each of the two days consists of a plenary session - in which a Dutch/Flemish and an international world leader present their view on a specific topic in ecology or evolution - two sets of five parallel sessions (including more workshop-like sessions), and a poster session. Parallel sessions generally consists of 6 oral presentations, so there is a total of around 125. On average, there are 75-100 scientific poster presentations during the meeting. On the first evening, a more relaxed and thought-provoking presentation is generally scheduled.

The NAEM meeting is organised in collaboration with the Dutch-Flemish Ecological Society (NecoV) and is financially supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). This year will be the 15th edition; as always, the meeting will be held at Conference Centre "De Werelt" in Lunteren. There will be four plenary speakers. The conference normally takes place in February, but it has been postponed to September this time due to corona.
