We are pleased to announce the 10th International Heliconius meeting. The meeting is a celebration of research into the origins and evolution of the adaptive radiation within Heliconius and related species. The topics will include genomics, behaviour, mimicry and ecology of Heliconius butterflies.
The meeting will be hosted by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and will take place on July 25-26th in Gamboa, Panama. In addition to research talks and posters, there will be several breakout sessions and workshops.
If you haven’t done so and are are interested in attending the meeting please contact Owen McMillan (mcmillano(at)si.edu) today. In that e-mail please indicate 1) the dates of your visit, 2) if you are interested in presenting a talk or poster and 3) housing preference [Gamboa Rainforest Resort (posh), shared room in the ridge housing (dorm-like), or a bed in the mostly restored Gamboa School House (camp-like)].

At a rough count, we reckon this must be the tenth meeting (The first one I went to was organised by me in Panama, but Bob Srygley assured me that there was an earlier one so we called Panama the second, and since then 2 in Harvard, 2 in Puerto Rico, 1 in Cambridge, 1 in Paris, 1 in Edinburgh)…. so we need to celebrate!
Many of you have already let Owen know that you are coming – if you haven’t done so already please email and let us know. In due course we will post more information about accommodation and take schedules here. We are also giving serious consideration to the social schedule!
