Dear colleagues,

the German Zoological Society warmly invites you to participate at the 113th Annual Meeting of the German Zoological Society.

We are truly excited about this meeting, that will now take place in the afternoons (MESZ) from August 30 - September 3, 2021. It will be the first “digital only” meeting of our Society. At the same time, we are sad that COVID-19 has forced us to go digital instead of meeting old and new friends in Würzburg.

We are happy to announce that seven plenary speakers that were recruited by the Würzburg-organizers Charlotte Förster & colleagues for the 2020/2021 meeting have agreed to participate in our online endeavor. Thus you can expect a captivating meeting that will cover a wide field of modern zoological research and offer ample opportunity for regular talks, short poster presentations and lively exchange to discuss and develop concepts in zoology.

We strongly encourage you to participate and to bring in your zoological expertise and curiosity to enrich our meeting. You can expect many familiar aspects of our regular meetings also for this digital venue, including poster presentations, talks of early career and more senior researchers, along with special lectures by our awardees. 

The Society has decided to make the meeting as accessible as possible by minimizing costs. All participants up to PhD candidates that are or become members of our Society will attend at no cost. Fees for senior members are very moderate. Help us in delivering the best Zoology has to offer and actively participate!

On behalf of the Council,

Jacob Engelmann & Gabriele Uhl
