We are delighted to announce that as part of the National Science Foundation's EDGE program, and in concert with the UT Center for Brain, Behavior & Evolution, we will be hosting a meeting for vole researchers at the University of Texas at Austin on August 23-24, 2018. The meeting will begin with breakfast at 8am on Friday, August 23, and end at 12pm on Saturday, August 24 — allowing interested participants to take an extra evening to explore Austin. The meeting will allow us to explore the latest in interdisciplinary work, with talks spanning from molecular to ecological scales.
As part of the NSF EDGE program, we will also be describing plans to improve genomic resources for work with voles, as well as seeking feedback about community interests and barriers to entry for genomic tools. PIs and trainees at all stages are welcome to attend. Please help us spread the word by forwarding this announcement to interested colleagues and posting it to social media.
Registration will close on June 1, but we have a limited number of rooms available on campus at a special rate and recommend booking early. Hotel reservations can be made at the AT&T Center on the UT campus here.
