Welcome to the ESEB 2025 congress, to be held at the Barcelona Congress Palace , Barcelona, Spain, on 18-22 August 2025.
The congresses of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) are organized biennially since 1987 and are now among the largest conferences in evolutionary biology with about 1400 – 1700 participants. In this occassion, the congress will be hosted by the Spanish Society for Evolutionary Biology (SESBE).
The congress will commence on Monday, August 18, 2025 , with the welcome reception, and will continue until Friday, August 22, concluding with the conference dinner.
The Barcelona Congress Palace is easily accessible by public transport and is close to the city centre and is adjacent to the beautiful Montjuïc park.
We will closely monitor the current pandemic situation and adjustments may be necessary closer to the date. However, we currently aim for an “in person” meeting to allow for direct interactions among participants, with the possibility of opening some key seminars for a virtual audience. Concerning the environmental issues connected with travelling, wherever possible, we recommend to use a public transport, Barcelona has a very good public transport system, and the city is well connected by train or plane with the rest of Europe. Barcelona is a very attractive destination and we recommend booking your lodging as soon as possible.
