Evolution of pathogen and parasite avoidance behaviours

Theo Murphy meeting
Monday 12 – Tuesday 13 June 2017
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre
Organised by Dr Rachel McMullan and Cecile Sarabian
https://royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2017/06/evolution-pathogen-parasite/

Avoidance behaviours protect species as diverse as worms, ants, fish, monkeys and humans from infection by reducing or preventing contact with parasites and pathogens. This meeting will unite researchers working in invertebrates, vertebrates and humans to discuss the evolution of pathogen avoidance behaviour and how these avoidance instincts can be harnessed to improve animal and human health around the world. Join us to network with researchers working in a diversity of experimental models to share techniques and knowledge and form multidisciplinary collaborations.
This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking.

  • Free to attend
  • Registration is essential (please request an invitation)
  • Catering and accommodation are available to purchase at registration

International Society for Behavioural Ecology 2016 Call for Symposia

As in previous years, ISBE 2016 at the University of Exeter will include an extra day after the main conference to host up to 10 small, themed symposia. We are now inviting proposals for these symposia.

We will host up to 10 concurrent symposia on Weds 3rd August 2016, immediately following the main conference (29th July – 2nd August). Each symposium should focus on an issue of current relevance and interest within behavioural ecology as broadly defined.

Each symposium should be organised by a maximum of three people. Symposium formats are flexible, and we encourage applicants to be creative: you may include a mix of talks, opportunities for discussion or breakout groups, teaching forums and/or workshops. Our facilities can hold up to 350 people per symposia. We encourage applications from, and/or involvement of, early career researchers.

To submit a proposal, send a 2-page (single spaced) outline including affiliations and contact details of the organisers, a description of the proposed theme/topic, a justification of its relevance/timeliness, and proposed symposium structure (symposium participants do not need to be confirmed but please give an indicative list). Proposals should be sent to science@isbe2016.com by 18th December 2015. You can mail us from www.gmail.com

Proposals will be selected by the ISBE organising committee on the criteria of (i) scientific rigour, (ii) timeliness/relevance to the field of behavioural ecology, and (iii) symposium structure and balance of topics/participants (please aim to ensure an equal number of male and female participants from a range of career stages and national affiliations).

Economics and Biology of Contests Conference 2016

From 27–28 February 2016, order Brisbane will play host to an exciting gathering of economic and evolutionary thinkers who will explore the potential for a closer synthesis between evolution and economics in order to understand both the economics and biology of behaviour in contest.

The Economics and Biology of Contests Conference aims to bring together leading economists, psychologists and evolutionary biologists to explore contest behaviour in economic, political and social environments. The conference will provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss the economic, psychological and evolutionary biology approaches to this topic, explore common ground and identify collaborative opportunities.

The call for papers is now open and will close 16 November 2015. Submit your abstract via rsvp@qut.edu.au
