CISAB sponsors an annual Animal Behavior Conference each spring. Attended by over 130 students and scientists from across the country, the conference offers an outstanding opportunity for animal behaviorists to meet and present their latest research.
The conference consists of ≈20 talks across multiple sessions and an afternoon poster session. It culminates with a plenary lecture by a highly accomplished researcher in the field of animal behavior and an evening reception open to all participants. Previous plenary lecturers have included:
