EVO-WIBO (Evolution in Washington, Idaho, British Columbia, and Oregon) is a gathering of evolutionary biologists of the Pacific Northwest. This meeting is held every second year and typically attracts 120-140 researchers for a fun weekend of presentations and discussions. The 2016 meeting will be held April 15th-17th.

As it has from its inception, the conference will be held at Fort Worden State Park in beautiful Port Townsend, WA. This Washington state park is right on Puget Sound on the Olympic Peninsula, with a small marine science center, a nice beach, and many recreation opportunities nearby.

Please note that accommodations for childcare, nursing mothers, and wheelchair accessibility are available (click Location for more details).


Registration is now open! Registration deadline is March 1st.


A welcome reception will take place Friday evening April 15th. The meeting will run from Saturday morning the 16th through midday Sunday the 17th. More details here.


This year's meeting is being organized by members at the University of Washington.
