The 58th Annual Conference of the
Animal Behavior Society

August 3-6, 2021

Pre & Post-Conference Events: Sunday, August 1st & Saturday August 7th.

Together with the ABS Meeting Planning Committee and the ABS Executive Committee, we are excited to invite you to our 2021 annual meeting. This will be the second ABS annual meeting to be held in virtual format. While we all miss the pleasures of meeting our colleagues in person during the annual meeting, the virtual format offers undeniable benefits in terms of accessibility, inclusivity, and engagement with our world-wide community of animal behaviorists. We look forward to a vibrant virtual meeting, full of good science and great interactions, that will set the stage for future hybrid ABS meetings that will include both virtual and in-person components.
