You may want to consider staying an extra week in Indianapolis immediately after Behavior 2011 to take advantage of a unique international opportunity. The International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) is meeting in Indianapolis immediately after Behavior 2011 (July 31- Aug 4), and is followed by the meeting of the International Society for Anthrozoology (ISAZ, Aug 4-6), also in Indianapolis. To get to the ISAE conference from Bloomington, you can take a shuttle to the Indianapolis airport, and then travel to the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Indianapolis via a city bus (IndyGo's Green Line, about $7/person) or second shuttle (Carey Transportation: (317) 241-7100, about $16/person).
Although Behavior 2011 cannot provide childcare, conference participants may be able to make
individual arrangements with local babysitters or daycares, such as the IU campus childcare facilities or those on the City of Bloomington’s list of childcare providers. Some of these are nearby and offer childcare on a weekly basis. Conference participants with children may also want to contact each other through the Behavior 2011 facebook page.
