We call for bio-informaticians, evolutionary biologists, microbiologists,
paleontologists, geologists, physicists, mathematicians, anthropologists,
archeologists, linguists, sociologists, economists, and philosophers and
historians of science to provide talks on the following topics:
1. Conceptualization, quantification and modeling of horizontal and vertical
transmission in biological and sociocultural sciences
2. Conceptualization, quantification and modeling of micro- and
macroevolution in biological and sociocultural sciences
3. Hierarchy theory and the units, levels and mechanisms of evolution
4. How the universal application of evolutionary theories enables new
possibilities for inter- and transdisciplinary research and the unification
of the sciences
We encourage submissions of (1) concrete models and simulations, (2)
theoretical, reflexive talks, and (3) historical accounts on any of the
