A summer school on Evolutionary Developmental Biology will be held at the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti (Venice, Italy) from September 14th to September 17th 2009.

The school will be articulated into eight theoretical/practical units introducing the students to a diversity of resources and working tools in evo-devo, and to likely pitfalls in their use.

The School is sponsored by the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research, Vienna, and the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge.

The teaching panel includes M. Akam (Cambridge), M. Babu (Cambridge), G. Fusco (Padova), J. Jaeger (Barcelona), R. Jenner (London), J. Jernvall (Helsinki), A. Minelli, (Padova), G.B. Müller  (Vienna), S.A. Newman (New York), I. Salazar-Ciudad (Barcelona), E. Schierenberg (Köln).

The school is hosted in Palazzo Franchetti, a splendid, recently restored building, located in the very centre of Venice and facing the Grand Canal.

Participants will be asked to pay a fee of 300 Euros, to contribute to their living expenses in Venice.

Deadline for applications: May 30th 2009.
