Welcome

Behaviour2015 – Welcome
Welcome to Behaviour2015, a joint meeting of the International Ethological Conference (IEC), Australasian Society for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASSAB), and Australasian Evolution Society (AES) that will be held from 9 to 14 August, 2015, in Cairns, Australia. We are very excited to host Behaviour2015 in our ‘backyard’ - between lush tropical rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef. Australia and the Asia/Pacific region have played a significant role for behavioural research, through the contributions of individual investigators as well as through the intriguing fauna that inhabits our region. We are delighted to invite you to Australia to share recent developments in all disciplines of behaviour research. 
Behaviour2015 will feature a diverse selection of plenaries, symposia and conference sessions that span the entire range of behaviour research: communication, cognition, sexual selection, predator-prey, foraging, social and sensory behaviour, parental care, personality, parasitism, human behaviour, cooperation, applied ethology, conservation ethology, and many more.
We encourage participation of delegates from all geographic regions working on all behaviour disciplines and taxa. We promise an inclusive and vibrant academic and social environment during the conference to allow for those important chats between delegates. After all, Australians are welcoming, friendly and easy-going … and we sure know how to throw a party! Come and join us at Behaviour2015.

EARLY BIRD HAS BEEN EXTENDED

We have had an excellent response with over 850 abstract submissions for Behaviour 2015. As a consequence, we are pushing back the earlybird deadline to May 21st 2015 to give just more time for the abstract review. We will inform you of the outcome of your abstract submission prior to the new earlybird deadline.
