Bringing together researchers who study small populations from multiple angles

2.5 days of talks, posters, discussions, and brainstorming.

Talks from experts

Topics ranging from theory, methods, demography, fitness, and conservation applications

Poster sessions

Poster sessions presenting the latest in small populations research

Mentorship circles

Junior researchers will be connected with senior mentors to exchange ideas and get career guidance

Bridging approaches

We will work to bridge different approaches toward studying small populations

Drafting a perspective piece

We take the first steps toward condensing our findings and discussions into a perspective piece

At this SMBE satellite meeting, we aim to bring together researchers from around the globe to discuss the latest theory, methods, and results from research into the genetics small populations. Over two and a half days at Princeton University, we will hear talks from experts in the field, exchange ideas, learn about new techniques, try to reconcile differing approaches, connect junior researchers with senior mentors, and sketch a draft for a perspective piece that reflects our collective findings.

No registration fees.
