4-8 August 2013
Behaviour 2013 is a joint meeting of the 33rd International Ethological Conference (IEC) and the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB). The conference will be held at The Sage Gateshead, Newcastle Gateshead, England between 4th and 8th August 2013.
The conference will be the largest gathering of researchers working in the field of animal behaviour in 2013. We welcome all those taking a biological approach to animal (or human) behaviour. We encourage participants addressing any of Tinbergen’s four questions, including function (behavioural ecology), mechanism (cognition, neuroethology), development and phylogeny; and we have already accepted symposia in all of these areas. We welcome both pure and applied research, and expect strong representation from the applied ethology community (we have already accepted symposia in animal welfare and conservation biology). Our aim is to stimulate exchanges between researchers from different disciplines within behaviour, and as such we particularly want to support work at the intersection of disciplines such as ‘EvoDevo’ and ‘EvoMecho’ research. We anticipate more than 800 participants coming from around the world.
