Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

The Pacific Ecology and Evolution Conference (PEEC) is a student-run, annual conference that aims to provide opportunities to early-career scientists to exchange ideas and seek collaborations with peers from across Western Canada and the United States. The conference was first held in 1979 and since then has provided opportunities for thousands of researchers to share their work and build their networks in a supportive and collaborative environment. PEEC is a multi-disciplinary and intellectually stimulating conference and we welcome presentations on any and all types of ecology/evolution research.

This year's conference will be held on April 1st and 2nd at SFU Harbour Centre, downtown Vancouver!
