BayCEER Workshop 2023

October 12, 2023, 8:50-17:30 - Campus University of Bayreuth, Building NW III


***REVIEW 2023***

The 15th BayCEER Workshop was a full success again! 120 participants, 13 talks, 29 posters, 2 Early Career talks, 1 Keynote, 5 photos - the programme was varied, full of new insights and rich in exchange. The Workshop made the range of BayCEER topics tangible as well as the connecting points between disciplines and showed how vibrant and vived the community is!

Thank you very much for participating and sharing your research - we're already looking forward to next year!

In the annual BayCEER workshop all disciplines working in Ecology & the Environmental Sciences at the University of Bayreuth come together to exchange perspectives and ideas and foster networking between working groups. All chairs and researchers active in this field are invited to present their work:

  • BayCEER members – postdoctoral research fellows and professors – are very welcome to share their experience. For newcomers at the UBT the workshop is an excellent opportunity to get to know the diversity of  environmental research at the UBT and to present their field of expertise to the community. External members are invited to catch up on research developments in Bayreuth, and vice versa.

  • For PhD students as well as Master students finishing up their thesis, a talk or poster at the BayCEER Workshop is a great opportunity to present their work in a comprehensible and convincing way. The interdisciplinary exchange of information provides a wealth of new ideas for your own research.
    A best talk and poster award is announced for students.

  • In 2023 we also call for contributions to the photo contest "Picture your research" from the BayCEER community.


Important Dates

Deadlines were preponed and diversified in 2023:

  • If you want to present research in the lecture hall, submit your talk abstracts until Juli 31!
  • If you are going for a poster format, you have three weeks more time: poster abstract deadline August 21.
  • If you want to take part in the photo contest, deadline for photo submission is September 18.

The earlier deadlines guarantee that BayCEER working groups can discuss participation during the lecture period, and internal programm planning will not get in conflict with conferences taking place in September.


Some History

Check out our last year's BayCEER Workshop 2022 to get an idea on previous talks, posters and winners. Or find out more about the BayCEER Workshop history 2008-2020.

For adequately addressing an interdisciplinary audience, a course on Presentation Skills for PhD and Master students used to accompany the workshop. As interest in participation dropped over the years, we just ask presentation authors on their prior experience and supporting structures.
