The Bureau des Doctorants et Étudiants du Muséum (association for master students, PhD students and young researchers of the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle of Paris), Doc’up (association for PhD students of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie), Timarcha (association for young naturalists), and Symbiose6 (association for young biologists of the UPMC) are pleased to announce the opening of the registration and abstract submissions for the 4th Young Natural History scientists' Meeting!

The event will be hosted at the MNHN of Paris (France) from the 7th to the 11th of February 2017.

This totally free conference is dedicated to young researchers in natural history (non permanent researchers such as PhD students, postdocs or master students) who are the only ones allowed to present communications, but senior researchers are very welcome to attend the conference. The meeting will be entirely in English. 

Of course you can attend the meeting without making a presentation. Please remember to register, it will help us to know the number of participants. 


For any question or more information, contact us at: ynhm2017@gmail.com.

 And follow us on Twitter @YNHM_2017 and on our Facebook page!



We invite contributions in English (either oral or poster communications) on all aspects of natural history represented in these six sessions:

- Biodiversity Dynamics and Conservation

- Humanities and Natural Sciences

- Systematics, Evolution and Comparative Anatomy

Earth and Planetary Sciences

- Evolutionary Ecology

- Methods in Natural Sciences


A keynote speaker will open each of these multidisciplinary themes with a lecture on a relevant topic.

Best oral and poster presentation of each session will be rewarded by a 200€ voucher offered by Springer, and other gifts from our sponsors.
