THE COSTS AND BENEFITS OF SOCIALITY
DATE: November 14-15, 2019
PLACE: Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The Cognition, Behavior & Evolution Network (CBEN) brings together scholars from evolutionary psychology, behavioral ecology, human biology, primatology, philosophy, and cultural evolution. Founded in 2015, CBEN facilitates research and education regarding evolution of cognition and behavior. CBEN is based in The Netherlands and Belgium but we welcome scholars from other countries to join us.
We organize an annual conference in the Fall semester. This year we welcome everyone to the University of Amsterdam on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 November 2019. The central theme of this year’s conference will be “The Costs and Benefits of Sociality”. We especially welcome submissions that fit this year’s theme from evolutionary, behavioral, and cognitive perspectives. Yet, we also welcome scholars from other subfields to present their work either as an oral presentation or a poster presentation. We have very exciting keynote speakers, who are world-class researchers on this topic: Simon Gächter, Joan Silk and Cecile Sarabian. Please find more information about the conference (e.g., abstract submission, registration) here.
