Marc Schoenauer, INRIA, France

Founding President of Species, organizer of the first EvoSomething in 1998, I would like to continue the tradition of past EvoStar conferences (we are reaching the 25th edition!), mixing scientific quality of presentations/discussions with this unique friendly family-like atmosphere we all love, while at the same time letting new blood with new ideas flow in, taking into account the evolution of the scientific and social contexts. Then, at some point in the near future, retire and relax 🙂
