Summer school 2009
The international EES summer school on Host-Parasite Coevolution was held at Frauenchiemsee (80 km east of Munich) from September 20th to September 25th, 2009.
Mike Boots, University of Sheffield, UK
(theoretical analysis of disease dynamics in humans and wildlife)
Jukka Jokela, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
(maintenance of sex driven by host-pathogen coevolution)
David Nash, University of Copenhagen, Denmark 
(coevolution on geographical scales)
Peter Tiffin University of Minnesota, USA 
(molecular coevolution between plants and parasites)
Local Instructors/Organizers at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich
Thanks to support from the Volkswagen Foundation, the University of Munich's EES program will cover housing and meals during the Summer School. Participants are required to cover their own travel expenses and pay a 50 Euro registration fee.
24 participants: 6 from the LMU university, 2 from other German universities and, 16 students coming from 11 different countries. There are 4 MSc/Dipl. students, and 20 PhD students.
The final updated program of the summer school can be found here: FINAL_program.
Four lectures will be given by the invited instructors, covering various topics of Host-parasite Coevolution: evolution of virulence and resistance, local adaptation and spatial structuring in host-parasite systems, and the molecular signature of coevolution. We plan also four more specific sessions for discussion and exercises organized jointly by the local and invited instructors.
Location: . This abbey is on the Fraueninsel, which is connected to the town Prien with a small ferry.
!!! Thanks to all of you !!!!
We hope that all the participants had a safe journey home.
The organisers thank the invited speakers and participants for this great summer school.
We really appreciated the the work atmosphere and the quality of the scientific discussions.
Hope all of you had a good time, and see you in future meetings.
We will try to post powerpoint presentations of the invited speakers.
