Call for abstracts for the Social Neuroendocrinology Preconference at HBES 2019

We are delighted to offer the Connecting Minds in Social Neuroendocrinology and Evolution preconference again at HBES 2019 in Boston!

This preconference meeting is an opportunity to connect new and established researchers who are investigating the social influences and effects of both endogenous and exogenous hormones in the context of human evolution.

The preconference event will take place on the morning of Wednesday May 29th, before HBES begins. This event will include short DataBlitz presentations with a focus on preliminary data, plenary talks from researchers in the field, and a networking lunch open to all attendees.

We are pleased to announce two plenary speakers presenting at this event:

Dr Jon Maner, from the department of Psychology at Florida State University

Dr Patty Kuo, from the department of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame

If you are interested in presenting in our DataBlitz session, please submit an abstract for consideration by April 20th (abstract decisions announced May 3rd). These brief talks open to all, but are particularly encouraged from undergraduate/postgraduate students or postdoctoral researchers. DataBlitz talks should emphasize new and/or preliminary research findings.

Please contact Amanda Hahn ( or Jaime Palmer-Hague ( with any questions regarding this event or for late registration.
