#HBES2021 Virtually Everywhere | Official Announcement

We are thrilled to announce that the annual meeting of HBES is going virtual this summer! Between June 24th and July 2nd, we will bring you an action-packed program, featuring the following (confirmed) speakers:


Keynote Address
Richard Wrangham (Harvard University)


Plenary Addresses
Michael Bang Petersen (Aarhaus University)
Magdalena Hurtado (Arizona State University)
Michael Muthukrishna (University College London)
Annie Wertz (Max Planck Institute for Human Development)
Melissa Wilson (Arizona State University)


Abstract submission will open April 1st for organized symposia, and April 16th for individual talks, blitzes, and posters. Submissions will close on April 23rd, and acceptance decisions will be sent out by May 7th.


–To avoid burnout, the conference days will be shorter than usual and spread across more days. Meeting times will shift from day to day, in order to accommodate as many international time zones as possible.
–Even if you already submitted an abstract for the in-person conference in Palm Springs, you still need to submit (again) for the virtual meeting. We are a separate host and program committee.
–HBES members will enjoy FREE registration. Not an HBES member? Join or renew today!


Stay tuned for updates about the schedule and program. We look forward to seeing you in (virtually everywhere)!


The Program Committee: Aaron Lukaszewski, Jaimie Krems, Anne Pisor, Cari Goetz
