T he 2016 Workshop on Population and Speciation Genomics is held in Český Krumlov from 24 January – 6 February. This is the first instance of a new Workshop that will take place biennially at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Český Krumlov in Czech Republic, alternating with the Workshop on Molecular Evolution. It brings together an international collection of faculty members and Workshop participants to study and discuss current ideas and techniques for the analysis of genomic data on the level of populations and closely related species. The Workshop consists of a series of lectures, demonstrations and computer laboratories that cover theory and practice of population and speciation genomics analyses.
The Workshop registration fee is $1,500. This amount does not cover travel, lodging or boarding. Many important details about the Workshop series can be read on our FAQ page.
The workshop schedule can be viewed below. Some modifications and additions to the schedule may be made prior to the beginning of the Workshop; however, the overall content and structure will remain largely the same.

Walter Salzburger, University of Basel
Michael Matschiner, University of Oslo
Jan Stefka, Biology Centre CAS, České Budějovice
