*Space is limited* so we strongly advise registering as soon as possible.

The symposium and preceding workshops aim to highlight the emerging role of demographic tools as bridges across ecological, spatial, and temporal scales. Specific themes include evolutionary demography, environmental and physiological drivers of population dynamics, communities and coexistence, species ranges and spread, conservation and global change, and methodological advances.

This is a fantastic opportunity to engage with leading researchers in a relatively small and focused setting.  The symposium will be held at historic Cutlers’ Hall in Sheffield with daily lunch and catering included.

*Preceding Workshops* offered on March 23:
–“Advanced applications of matrix population models: age-x-stage (and related) demographic models” -Hal Caswell
–“Integral projection models (IPMs) in population ecology and evolutionary biology” -IPMpack Team
–“Demographic, equilibrium and evolutionary analysis of structured population models with continuous development: a general methodology and software package” -André M. de Roos
–“Bayesian Survival Trajectory Analysis in R using BaSTA” -Fernando Colchero and Owen Jones
