31st Annual Human Behavior & Evolution Society meeting (Boston)

The HBES 2019 website is now live (http://meetatbu.com/hbes19). We are excited to hear talks from a great slate of plenaries, including Steve Gaulin, Michele Gelfand, Hopi Hoekstra, Ed Hagen, & Polly Wiessner. Our newly minted lifetime career award winner, David Buss, will deliver the keynote address.

This year we will have three pre-conference sessions to choose from (on open science, social neuroendocrinology, and integrated approaches to research on culture). We are also happy to announce that this year the conference will help coordinate onsite childcare (supported in part by generous funding from the society). Register for that, along with the conference, pre-conference sessions, banquet and BBQ on the conference website. And, make sure to register before February 28th to get early bird pricing!

As in years past, the society will be sponsoring student-member registration and housing (first come / first served, until funds run out). Student-members who register by February 28th will get registration for free. And, while funding is left, student-members will get a 50% discounted rate on dorm housing (usually $88/night). So, register early!

The deadline to submit an abstract for consideration is February 22nd (200 words max). This year we will be trying out the ‘datablitz‘ talk format (5 minutes, data heavy) in addition to standard symposium talks. You can indicate your order of preference for how you want your abstract considered on the website, as well as submit a manuscript for consideration for new investigator or postdoctoral award.
