*Workshop/ Summer school
“Quantitative Evolutionary Biology — understanding evolution with models and genomes.”

*Time and Place
September 14-21, 2014, Sirince, near Izmir, western Turkey.

*Keynote lecturers
Aida Andres (MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig)
Nick Barton (IST-Austria, Klosterneuburg)
Thomas Lenormand (CEFE/CNRS, Montpellier)
Pleuni Pennings (Stanford University, California)

The workshop is mainly targeted towards advanced graduate students and early post-docs studying evolutionary theory, evolutionary genetics or evolutionary genomics. However, we also accept a limited number of more experienced researchers in these fields that can share their knowledge with the students and that are open to collaboration with the scientists in the workshop.
The main body of the workshop will consist of keynote lectures (see above), and group projects developed by students under the supervision of young scientists. There will also be various short lectures and seminars during the workshop.
