Registration Information

We are trying to keep this meeting inexpensive, because we want especially students and young researchers, and colleagues from developing countries to be able to attend. We have received a grant from the American Society of Naturalists to provide reduced registration for a limited number of participants. Please e-mail for details. These grants will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.


The American Society of Naturalists (ASN) is providing four $250 travel grants to attend the conference. They will be awarded to attendees who meet the following criteria: they are or intend to become members of ASN by the beginning of the conference and they are not holding a permanent/tenured/tenure track position. Please apply informally for the awards with one paragraph explaining your situation to: upon registration, but no later than January 31 2017. Expect a decision by mid-February 2017. The awards will be presented during the conference in Norman. If we receive more than four applications, the awardees will pick picked randomly from the pool of applicants.

ASN is also sponsoring up to ten discounted registration fees ($50 each) for current ASN members. These will be awarded on a first – come – first served basis at registration. On the registration website will be a way to indicate ASN membership. The discount will be applied after verification of good standing.
