CALL FOR SYMPOSIA, INVITED SESSIONS & WORKSHOP PROPOSALS 2020 ABS MEETING

To organize a symposium, an invited paper session, or a workshop for the ABS Annual Meeting, you should first contact the Program Officers to discuss your ideas. We ask you to propose your topic to the Program Officers to make sure that there is no conflict with already existing plans and topics. A symposium should be a profound and stimulating review of an important subject area that currently is a major focus of research. It should be a thorough treatment of past work and current research advances. A symposium should be of general interest to most ABS members. Limited funding is available from ABS to assist with travel, registration, and other expenses for symposia. An invited paper session is a special grouping of papers that focus upon empirical results relating to a particular topic. A workshop is a hands-on exchange of ideas in a more informal setting relative to lectures and symposia. Funding is not available from ABS for expenses unrelated to invited paper sessions and workshops. 

Symposia, invited paper sessions, or workshop proposals for the 2020 meeting must be submitted through the website: https://www.research.net/r/TTW9JPL

Proposals are due on July 9, 2019. The proposals will be circulated to the Executive Committee prior to the Annual Meeting and then discussed at the Executive Committee meeting. 

Further information can be found on the ABS website or by contacting the ABS Program Officers: Alison Bell, E-mail: progofficer@animalbehaviorsociety.org or Elizabeth Tibbetts, E-mail: progofficerelect@animalbehaviorsociety.org
