In the Light of Evolution VII: The Human Mental Machinery
January 11-12, 2013
MEEGID delegates may be interested in this Colloquium, which brings together leading scientists who have worked on several aspects of human morals and aesthetics considered as mental traits, their evolution, and their relationship to related behaviors in other primates.
Registration Fee: $150.00
Reduced Registration Fee for Graduate Students and Postdocs: $100.00

MEEGID is a wide-ranging conference that deals with the molecular evolution of all pathogens: viruses, pathogenic bacteria, fungi, parasites and prions.
Together, the MEEGID congress series and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution, represent the main forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science and biomedical research on infectious diseases.
Attendance at this conference enabled delegates to:
Delegate feedback from MEEGID X in 2010
"A global approach of infectious diseases, a wide range of participating countries, a good mix of basic and more applied research..."
"...infectious diseases and evolution is one single conference. Other conferences have isolated talks on this inter-disciplinary subject."
"...an excellent opportunity to exchange scientific experiences and to establish new contacts around the world."
"There were, as usual, some very innovative approaches presented with extremely interesting results."
"The talks were very exciting, usually giving some important information that has not yet been published."
