After two successful meetings in Britain (Sussex 2007 and Bristol 2009), the third biannual MMEE conference is going to make the jump to the continent, and will be organised by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. We are happy to welcome you at our Science Campus and in the lively city of Groningen from 17 to 19 August, 2011.

Following the tradition of the previous meetings, we aim to show the latest developments of mathematical modelling in evolution and ecology by presenting a programme including keynote talks and thematic sessions.

Registration for the MMEE 2011 meeting is now closed.
