About the CEEC Rebellion

The Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (CEEC) Rebellion is an informal student-run meeting that brings together CEEC faculty, MSc, and PhD students, and Post-docs from across the University of East Anglia (UEA) to present and discuss their current research. The Rebellion covers a wide range of topics in ecology and evolutionary biology, and the presenters range from PhD students to senior members of UEA faculty, as well as two guests from other institutions.

The atmosphere is sociable and full of enthusiasm, and Rebel participants have the opportunity to get together and discuss life, research and everything during our lively Drinks Reception and the unmissable end-of-conference Social and Quiz!

Rebellion is funded by the Schools of Biological and Environmental Sciences, and The John and Pamela Salter Charitable Trust fund the Best Student Talk Award, as judged by our guest speakers.

The Rebellion is named after Kett's Rebellion that took place in and around Norwich in 1549 against the enclosure of common land by wealthy landowners.
