About

The Midwest Ecology and Evolution Conference (MEEC) is an annual regional conference hosted by different Midwestern institutions each year, and is organized and directed entirely by graduate students.  This conference is graduate and undergraduate student-focused, providing a professional atmosphere for students of all levels to interact with and learn from their peers. Previous conferences have drawn between 250 and 300 attendees from universities around the Midwest. Attendees are typically composed of 45% graduate students, 45% undergraduate students, and 10% faculty members.

This year, MEEC will be hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Saturday March 18 – Sunday March 19.
