PISCeS International Conference: Thursday, May 28 – Friday, May 29, 2020
Training Workshops: Wednesday May 27 & Saturday May 30, 2020

This spring, Pathway to Increase Standards and Competency of eDNA Surveys (PISCeS) International Conference will take place at the University of Guelph, Canada.
Registration and abstract submission now open!
PISCeS 2020 International Conference is envisioned as a conference where academia, regulators, and industry will join in a discussion on Pathways to Increase Standards and competency of Environmental DNA Surveys. The intent of the conference is to explore and inform public policy, industry strategies and future research on eDNA.

TRAINING WORKSHOPS:
eDNA Analytical Methods: Wednesday, May 27th, 2020
The eDNA Analytical Methods workshop will focus on targeted (morning) and passive metabarcoding (afternoon) approaches to detect eDNA.

eDNA Sampling: Saturday, May 30th, 2020
The eDNA Sampling workshop will explore a variety of sample collection methodologies for both professionals (e.g. using dedicated equipment) and citizen science collaborators (e.g. using inexpensive DIY kits).

KEY DATES:
• Early Bird Registration Fee – February 14th, 2020
• Regular Registration Fee – April 30th, 2020
• Late Registration Fee – During May

CANCELLATION OF CSEE-SCEE 2020

The local organizing committee and the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution council executive regret to announce that we have decided to cancel the 15th Annual Meeting of the CSEE scheduled for May 28-31 in Edmonton, AB. While the risk in most parts of Canada, including Alberta, is currently low, we feel that the COVID-19 situation is changing so rapidly that the risks to the society membership and the broader community dictate that we cancel the meeting sooner rather than later. This step is aligned with many of the restrictions our institutions and local health authorities are placing on travel, hosting and participation in public events.

  • Full reimbursement of registration fees will be handled by the University of Alberta’s Conference Services. Reimbursement will include any conference registrations and optional items paid for through the CSEE-SCEE 2020 on-line registration site.
  • Membership fees – Memberships cover CSEE activities for the year and are not required to attend the conference. Membership fees will not be reimbursed.
  • Travel & accommodation costs – Lister Residences accepts cancellations without charge up to 48 hours before your planned arrival date.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot cover other travel and accommodation costs associated with disrupted travel plans by regular participants. However, the tri-council agencies have confirmed that the reimbursement of non-refundable travel fees from agency funds is acceptable considering the impacts of COVID-19.
  • If you have an agreement for travel costs to be covered by the CSEE, non-recoverable travel costs may be reimbursed on a case-by-case basis. These reimbursements will be dealt with by the Treasurer of the CSEE (Yolanda Morbey, ymorbey@uwo.ca).
