About OE3C

The Ontario Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution Colloquium has been meeting annually for almost 50 years to share the province’s newest and most exciting research! 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of this interdisciplinary meeting, hosted online by the University of Guelph online on May 9th.

OE3C is student-run and student-focused, aiming to give young researchers the opportunity to practice their communication skills, gain feedback on their work, and network with local experts and peers. Each year, we also host a number of plenary speakers who present their cutting edge research. In 2020, our plenary speakers were Sigal Balshine from McMaster University, Melissa Bateson from Newcastle University, and Scott Taylor from the University of Colorado Boulder – all of their talks are still available on our YouTube channel.

Unfortunately the in-person portion of OE3C 2020 had to be postponed in an effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19. But, we will be going forward with an online meeting in mid-May 2021, also hosted by the University of Guelph! Stay tuned for details and in the meantime, please keep in touch with us via Twitter or send us an email.
