Welcome to YETI

YETI is a first-of-its-kind conference for students and researchers of ecology, evolution, behaviour and conservation in India, organized entirely by student volunteers from across the country.

This event serves as a friendly and inspiring platform for ecologists early in their career, to present and discuss their work, exchange ideas, and strike up collaborations with contemporaries.

The fifth edition of YETI will be held from 16th to 19th December, 2013 at the Nagaland University, Lumami Campus

Day long workshops on 16th December! Interested students reach venue on 15th December.

Accommodation for participants on 15th December at Loknath Bibah Bhawan Lodge near Mariani Railway Station

Quick Guidelines for Speed-talks/Poster presentations: Please bring your presentations on a memory stick so that it can be easily transferred to the conference computers. Formats that can be used are PPT (Microsoft Office) files. However, we advise you to also save your presentation as a PDF also to avoid problems at the session. Should not prepare more than two slides to ensure best utilisation of 4 minutes. We also suggest participants to avoid animations for the same reason.
