If you are attending HBES 2016, you may need to apply for a visa to travel to Canada. For visa-exempt foreign nationals, Canada has introduced a new entry requirement known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Find out if you require a visa or an eTA here.
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 email@example.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).
From 27–28 February 2016, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
