3rd Philippine Symposium on Freshwater Biodiversity and Ecosystems (PSFBE) on November 9–11, 2022


This conference aims to bring togethers scientists from across Southeast Asia and will serve as an avenue where participants can present newfound knowledge on the biodiversity and ecology of freshwater environments in the Philippines and the rest of tropical Asia. It is being organized together with the University of Santo Tomas, University of the Philippines, Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), Department of Agriculture – National Fisheries Research and Development Institute (NFRDI), Association of Systematic Biologists of the Philippines (ASBP), and BIO-PHIL: Biodiversity Teaching in a Philippine-Cambodian-German Network.

6th Fresh Blood for Fresh Water Conference (Tihany, Hungary 23-27 April 2019)

The ‘Fresh Blood for Fresh Water’ is an international community meeting of early-career limnologists, which provide a friendly atmosphere to meet, present new results and exchange ideas with other young researchers.
In 2019, the young scientists of the MTA Centre for Ecological Research welcome the conference in a beautiful peninsula, next to Lake Balaton.
Excellent plenary talks will be given by early-career group leaders, and the workshops will cover both theory and practice in different fields. Sessions will cover not just biology but many other fields related to freshwater systems (like water and sediment chemistry, geology and hydrology).
