Attendance will be limited to the 165 participants, the maximum who can be accommodated in GAIAS dormitories and in local hotels. Scientists active in the study of evolution from the origins of life to the evolution of humans will be invited to speak on the first day. Evidence for evolutionary change will be the focus of the second day. Participants will enjoy the opportunity to tour regions of particular scientific interest on the Island and in other parts of the archipelago on the third day.

Description

We are pleased to announce the World Summit on Evolution in the Galapagos, June 9-12, 2005.

About USFQ

The Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) is pleased to announce a meeting on evolution with the broadest thematic approach that the world has witnessed in the last decades. This summit of scientists will be held June 9-12, 2005 in the Galapagos Islands, the place that inspired Darwin to propose the theory that revolutionized our conception of the world in relation to our origins.

Through a series of presentations and discussions, an international group of scientists, evolutionary experts, will be face to face sharing their points of view about the mechanisms and evidences of this theory; As well as discuss future research horizons.

The Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) will host this summit and celebrate the founding of its Instituto Académico de Artes y Ciencias de Galápagos (GAIAS). This Institute, created in 2002, occupies an area of 4.5 hectares in the bay of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristóbal Island. As the only university in the Galápagos Islands, GAIAS was formed as a first class center for international students and researchers with the aim of promoting and developing the study of evolutionary science in Ecuador and the world.

The Evolution Summit will be the largest scientific meeting of this genre and the culmination of a program designed to teach evolution to primary and secondary students to be held throughout the year in Ecuador.

This scientific event will consist of a series of presentations followed by open discussions between the lecturers and the other participants. The program will take place in the Municipal hall of San Cristóbal Island. The Summit will have a maximum of 165 invited participants in order to guarantee a diverse and qualified assembly. In the first day will participate recognized scientists who have investigated transcendental subjects related to the "Theory of the Evolution", from the origin of the life until the evolution of the human being. On the second day, the lectures will discuss the proofs and evidence supporting this Theory. On the third day, the most important contemporary problems of evolution will be discussed and participants will be able to travel to different regions of scientific interest on the Island and other places in the Archipelago. In addition, an optional boat trip is planned around the Islands at the conclusion of the conference.

The participants of the Summit are an international group of scientists, who will share their knowledge and contribute to evolution in all fields of biology. In addition to the speakers, another group of scientists was invited as rapporteurs to give a different point of view to the speakers, to ensure a wide margin of debate. Each session will also include moderators who, in addition to having extensive knowledge on the subject, have been chosen for their ability to lead discussions. Participants will also include Ecuadorian scientists and biologists from abroad, who have maintained extensive interaction with the USFQ and its Amazonian station (Estación de Biodiversidad Tiputini - Tiputini Biodiversity Station), historians, philosophers, researchers and writers on evolution.

The topic of evolution has been debated in several previous conferences, however, new information on different types of biological organisms, innovative methodology and a recent flow of data stimulate new reflections and studies on this subject.

This Summit differs from other meetings or conferences on the same subject because of its importance, as the main areas of research on biological evolution will be represented. Participants also come from various parts of the world, an aspect that will contribute to greater cultural and intellectual diversity. During the lectures, emphasis will be placed on making short presentations to stimulate discussions on the topics to be discussed, so that rapporteurs, students and other participants can join the discussions.

The memories of the Evolution Summit will be published in the future as a guide on the most recent evolving concepts of the 21st century.

About GAIAS (Galapagos Science Center)

The Dream to develop a fully operational university for all world citizens in the Galapagos Islands is now a reality. In 2002 the University San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) established a world-class academic and research institute that will operate with the collaboration of partner universities from around the world.

The new university campus at GAIAS is located in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the capital city of Galapgos Archipelago, on the island of San Cristóbal. The island has a population of around 6,000 inhabitants. In February 2002, the government of Ecuador assigned USFQ a beautiful site of 4.5 hectares (11 acres) overlooking the bay.

GAIAS will become the most important educational and research entity of all the islands. Not only will it serve students from the mainland and abroad, but it will also function as a community college and cultural center for the residents of San Cristóbal.

In 1995, USFQ established a similar center at the Tiputini River in the Amazon Basin. Information on the USFQ Tiputini Biodiversity Station, which has become a joint project with Boston University, is available on our web site at www.usfq.edu.ec.

About Graduate Students

NSF-Funded Graduate Attendance


1. INTRODUCTION


Support for 24 graduate students to attend the World Summit on Evolution will come from a U.S. National Science Foundation proposal (DEB-0509443, PI-Thomas H. Kunz, Boston University) that has been recommended for funding with contributions from the Population and Evolutionary Processes cluster and the Ecological Biology cluster. Only these students can present a poster during the student poster presentation on the second night of the conference.

There is an OPEN INVITATION ONLY FOR FIVE POSITIONS FOR ECUADORIAN CITIZENS currently studying some aspect of evolution in Ecuador or abroad. There is a CLOSED, INVITATION ONLY APPLICATION PROCESS FOR THE REMAINING POSITIONS that are based on speaker recommendations. SPEAKERS HAVE ALREADY GIVEN THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS AND NO MORE WILL BE ACCEPTED, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THEM.

Ecuadorian applications are due 5:00 p.m. February 15th.

2. GRADUATE STUDENT PARTICIPATION


2.1. OVERALL STRUCTURE OF THE GRADUATE PROGRAM



Graduate students will be an integral part of the World Summit on Evolution. Their inclusion will add to the already diverse assembly that has been invited. Student participation is envisioned to increase the views and opinions expressed throughout the conference and to be an investment in the future for developing evolutionary this science. Through their interactions with each other and with the professional scientists during the discussion and debate periods, the student poster session, and between session talks the graduate students will gain a better understanding of their field, meet new people and make valuable contacts with scientists from throughout the world, and hopefully generate ideas for their future careers.

2.2. SELECTION OF STUDENTS


A fair, competitive process will be employed to select twenty-five graduate students for whom the experience will be meaningful and related to their current and future research. They will be selected in two ways to assure cultural, philosophical and academic diversity. First, each of the 19 main speakers will submit a list of three students in their respective field [NOTE: THIS PROCESS HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT SPEAKERS]. Only one of them may be their own current or former student. The students will be notified electronically and will be asked to submit a CV, a review of their current and possible future research interests, and a statement of how they can contribute to the intellectual diversity of the conference. A committee will choose one applicant from each of the submitted lists. Second, five Ecuadorian students, either currently at an Ecuadorian university or abroad, will be selected. Ecuadorian professors and teachers will be notified electronically and be asked to encourage their current and former students to submit an application. Like the other students, the Ecuadorians will also submit a CV, a review of their research interests, and a statement of how they can contribute to the intellectual diversity of the conference. The same committee will select five of the applicants.

Selection criteria:

Students will either be currently working on their graduate degree or will have finished within six months prior to the conference.
Students may be in various stages of their graduate careers.
Students must be able to participate in the entire conference.
Diverse backgrounds will be represented; minorities and underrepresented groups will be encouraged to apply.
Those advocating a new approach to their field or those studying organisms other than those of the speakers, commentators and chairs will be emphasized.
Priority will be given to students who show that they can contribute to the intellectual and cultural diversity of the conference.
Students must present a poster of their current or future research.
Selection committee: A committee comprised of conference organizers and others associated with the conference will select the graduate student participants. Applications will be disseminated electronically to the committee, which will then review and rank each applicant. A conference call will be held during which the applicants will be chosen. All decisions by the committee will be fair and final.

Selected students: Students will be notified immediately following the review process and those selected will also have their department chairs informed. They will be asked to make travel arrangements as soon as possible and they will be encouraged to ask their university departments to fund any further expenses they might incur that will not be covered by the grant that they will receive.

2.3. GRADUATE STUDENT EVENT DETAILS


Student interactions: Students will be encouraged to attend all sessions, although this aspect cannot be enforced. Student opinions that differ from the speakers and the questions that they can raise are vital for a deep and lively debate. Students can often be relied upon to bring up facets of conversation that would otherwise be lacking among veterans in the field. Likewise, they will be encouraged to interact among themselves and the other invitees throughout the conference, including during breaks, meals, and on the island tours on the third day.

Poster session: A two-hour poster session is planned for the second night, where participating students will be required to present a poster of their current or future research, although the posters will remain on display for all four days. Other participants will be encouraged to attend this session during which the conference focuses its attention on the NSF-funded student participants. This session will allow the students to gain valuable feedback and advice on their work from intimate conversations with the worlds leading evolutionary scientists. It will also allow the students to show the professionals what they are capable of and how they can help expand and change our views of evolution. At the end of the session participants will submit their vote for the best-presented poster. Votes will be counted and announced at the end of the conference. The student with the best poster will receive a certificate and a free copy of the book containing the proceedings of the conference.

End of conference discussion: At the end of the fourth day graduate students will meet among themselves to talk about ideas, opinions, data, and the past and future directions of evolutionary science that were discussed during the conference. This will allow students to sum up the conference through their own experiences and views.

2.4. OTHER STUDENT PARTICIPATION


Up to twenty-four undergraduates who will be in the GAIAS evolution summer program also will be invited to attend the Summit. Like the graduate students, undergraduates will be encouraged to attend all sessions. While these students will not have a specific role to play in the conference they will be encouraged to participate in the debates. After the conference, these students will return to their respective institutions to discuss and critically review what they have learned. There may also be other graduate students who have been invited to attend the conference or who are personal guests of the speakers, commentators or session chairs; these students will not be able to present a poster.

City of San Cristobal

San Cristobal Island


San Cristobal, named for the Patron Saint of seafarers, (St. Christopher), is the easternmost island in the Galapagos.  It is home to the oldest settlement of the islands, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno.

Alternative name:  Chatham
Area:  558 Km2
Maximum Altitude: 730 m
Population: 6,000
Geographic features: Beaches, islets, eroded tuff cone, official capital
 

Puerto Baquerizo Moreno


Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, on the Island of San Cristobal, is the capital of the Galapagos Islands and the oldest settlement of the Archipelago. This small bayside village is home to the Galapagos Academic Institute for the Arts & Sciences (GAIAS), the Galapagos National Park Interpretation Center, a small museum, souvenir shops and local townspeople. The people of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno make their living principally by artesian fishing and tourism.
 

Galápagos National Park Entrance Fees


Upon arrival in the airport in San Cristobal you will be required to pay an entrance fee (IN CASH).

Entrance fees are as follows:

  • Ecuadorians citizens: $6
  • Foreign tourists: $100


Climate


The Galapagos Islands are located near the equator, approximately 1000 km (600 miles) off the west coast of Ecuador. The climate of the Galapagos is influenced by a rich system of both cool and warm oceanic currents, with a major influence being the Humboldt Current, which brings cool water to the islands.

The Galapagos year can be divided into two “seasons:” the “hot” or “wet” season which lasts from December to early May with an average temperature of 25 C/ 77 F; while the “cool” or “dry” season from May to December has an average temperature of 18 C/ 64 F. In San Cristobal, where GAIAS is located, the water temperature normally averages 22-23 C (71.6-73.4 F), although it can range from 19-26 C (66.2-78.8 F). Other islands (such as Española) can have lower water temperatures depending on the time of year. Despite the lower temperatures, it is possible to swim year-round in the Galapagos without a wetsuit.
 

Electricity


The electrical current in Galapagos is 110 volts 60 cycles, the same as North America, so adapters for North American equipment are not needed. However, plug converters may be necessary in older buildings.
 

Internet Access


There is a computer lab at GAIAS with a limited number of computers that offer internet access. Local internet cafes in San Cristobal cost an average of $2.50 per hour.
 

Handling Your Money


Ecuador uses United States dollars and coins as it currency.

There are two banks in San Cristobal: Banco del Pacifico and Fomento. For ATM access you should use cards that have either a CIRRUS or Mastercard symbol. Cards with the Visa symbol are not usually accepted by ATMs in San Cristobal. If you are traveling with a Visa card will have to go the bank and ask for a cash advance, which has a fee of 4% of the total value of the transaction.
Traveler’s Checks can be changed by banks in San Cristobal, with a fee of $5 for the total transaction. Traveler’s checks from American Express work best.
 

Credit Cards


MasterCard and Visa have only recently been implemented in San Cristobal, but in very few places. It is always better to have cash, and you should not rely on being able to use credit cards. On the island of Santa Cruz, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express are usually accepted (but in higher-end places). In general, MasterCard is the most widely accepted card both in the Galapagos and on the mainland.
 

Transportation


On the island of San Cristobal, you will be able to travel to many places around town on foot. If you prefer not to walk, you can take a taxi (average US$1.00 for most trips) or rent a bike (bring a good quality bike lock).
 

Laundry

 

  • SUPER WASH: Calle José de Villamil e Ignacio de Hernández, $2 (12 clothing items) wash and dry.
  • WASH AND DRY: Av. Alsacio Northia y 12 de Febrero, $2 (12 clothing items) wash and dry.
     

What to Bring


Do not to forget to bring lots of sun block and a hat. This can be found in San Cristobal, but it is more expensive and there are very few varieties from which to choose. Rolls of film are also more expensive in Ecuador—a roll of 24 normally costs around $5. Many other things can be purchased in San Cristobal, but they are usually national products and offer less variety. Many people prefer to bring personal items from home.
