YoMos Online Workshop
23-25 May 2022

Welcome to the 3rd online edition of the YoMos Workshop!

​Since the online format was received well the last two years and we cannot have an analog workshop yet, you are invited to join us virtually once more from 23-25 May 2022.

​The young modellers in ecology workshops offer a relaxed and open-minded atmosphere that encourages the exchange of experiences and ideas with other young researchers and our invited keynote speakers. The workshop is directed at early stage scientists (Bachelor, Master or PhD students) who in any way are connected to ecological modelling through their project/work.

As part of the workshop, all participants may present their work either as a lightning talk (5 min short summary of your project) or presentation (15 min standard talk) with opportunities for discussions and feedback. Moreover, if there are certain skills you could share, propose your own student-led workshop (it's a fun experience)!

​Finally, we will also have several keynote speakers who will share their exciting research with us:


  •  Sonia Kéfi  (Ecological intercations and ecosystem resilience, CNRS, Institut des Sciences de l’Evolution de Montpellier, France)

  •  Loïc Pelissier  (Landscape ecology and evolution, ETH Zurich, Switzerland)

  •  Daniele Silvestro  (Evolutionary paleobiology, University of Fribourg, Switzerland)

Since the entire workshop takes place online, we only charge a small participation fee of 10€ (to be used for a little thank you gift for the keynotes).

Q&A Section

Which platform will the workshop be based on?

The workshop will be hosted via Zoom (preferably use the app for better stability of the video stream).

How will the presentations be given?

Presentations can be a lightning talk (5 mins, e.g. for projects in an early stage) or a "normal" presentation (15 mins, with the possibility to discuss your results with the group), which will be moderated by our organisation team.

Wouldn't discussions end up being one big buzz?

To avoid this from happening, there are special rules for speaking. Everyone but the presenter will be muted by the moderators by default. If a question comes up or there is something you would like to say, just let the moderator know and they will pass on the "mic" to you!
