Join Us World Experts Your Peers

A joint meeting of the 56th Annual Conference of the Animal Behavior Society and the 36th International Ethological Conference
University of Illinois at Chicago
July 23-27, 2019

The Animal Behavior Society was founded in 1964 to promote the study of animal behavior in the broadest sense, including studies using descriptive and experimental methods under natural and controlled conditions. Current members' research activities span the invertebrates and vertebrates, both in the field and in the laboratory, and include experimental psychology, behavioral ecology, neuroscience, zoology, biology, applied ethology, and human ethology as well as many other specialized areas.

Together with the International Ethological Conference, the Animal Behavior Society and the University of Illinois at Chicago enthusiastically welcomes all participants to Behaviour 2019. We believe that scientific excellence flourishes in an environment that where a diversity of voices and perspectives are freely expressed, in an environment of mutual respect for the dignity and worth of every participant. We look forward to a meeting where all can learn and be heard.

Conference Local Host: Mary V. Ashley, Department of Biological Sciences, UIC
Program Officer: Alison Bell, ABS Program Officer
Program Officer-Elect: Elizabeth Tibbets, ABS Program Officer-Elect
