Research Students' Conference

University of Warwick, 29 June to 1 July 2022


This conference is primarily aimed at postgraduate research students interested in mathematical and statistical aspects of population genetics, including phylogenetics, phylodynamics, coalescent theory, stochastic processes in population genetics, computational statistics and machine learning for genomics.

The meeting will be a hybrid in-person and online event, based at Warwick. Talks will mainly be contributed by attendees alongside four plenary sessions given by senior researchers. All talks will be given in-person and will be livestreamed for those unable to attend in-person. A poster reception will be held on Wednesday evening, and a conference dinner on Thursday evening.
