The Department of Animal and Plant Sciences is delighted to be hosting the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour Easter Conference in Sheffield on Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th April 2014.

There has been a long tradition of the Easter ASAB conference providing an invaluable opportunity for young researchers to address particular issues, to talk informally to more established researchers in animal behaviour, and to present and discuss their own work. This year follows that tradition and has a star-studded cast of enthusiastic researchers who are keen to share their experience with you, explore issues that will help shape your career and discuss your research. Look up the postgraduate workshop programme.

Previous attendees of the ASAB Easter conference have said: "I loved the variety of student talks;" "it was a good opportunity for student presentation in a welcoming environment" and a "chance to hear about other projects and discuss my project as it is still very new and developing."

You can now register online until Friday 21/3, £70. For more information on accommodation, check the logistics page.

The deadline for presenting a talk or poster has now passed. Many thanks for the great response! Talks and posters have now been selected and presenters advised. The final programme will be available by mid March. 

We are very grateful to our sponsors, Avisoft Bioacoustics, Brill, 5m Publishing and Royal Society Publishing for their kind generosity in supporting this event. The best poster competition is sponsored by Avisoft Bioacoustics and the best talk competition is sponsored by Royal Society Publishing.
