Welcome to Evolution 2014, the joint annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE), the Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB), and the American Society of Naturalists (ASN).

This meeting is the premier annual opportunity for sharing scientific research related to evolution. This year, we have close to 2000 attendees from 38 countries, almost 1200 talks, and 450 posters. We also welcome those who are attending the Evolution meeting for the first time, including many of our 800+ graduate and undergraduate students. A special welcome to evolutionary biologists in the making, our K-12 attendees, who will also be presenting posters on Saturday night – be sure to visit their posters. We also have a number of sponsors who through their support have helped make this meeting a success. Our sponsors and other exhibitors will be displaying a variety of products that we are certain you will find interesting and useful.

Social activities will include an opening reception, mixers with each evening poster session, and a Super Social at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences on the last night of the conference. When you are at the Museum, check out the artwork on display by former NESCent artist-in-residence, Lynn Fellman.  At the conference, look out for the NESCent/HHMI Evolution Film Festival on Saturday night — all of these mixers and receptions are included with registration.

Evolution 2014 will meet jointly with the iEvoBio conference, which brings together biologists interested in evolution, systematics, biodiversity, software, and mathematics.

We hope you have a great conference, you meet lots of people, and you learn a great deal of interesting science. On behalf of the Evolution 2014 Organizing Committee, again WELCOME!

-Allen Rodrigo, Director of NESCent and head of the organizing committee for Evolution 2014
