CBEN 2018 - Cultural Evolution - 22/23-11-2018

The Cognition, Behavior & Evolution Network (CBEN) unites scholars working in the fields of evolutionary psychology, behavioral ecology, human biology, primatology, philosophy, and cultural evolution since 2015. The aim of CBEN is to facilitate research and education in relation to the evolution of cognition and behavior. Its basis is in The Netherlands and Belgium but we invite scholars from other countries to join us.

Annually we organize a conference in the Fall semester, this year we welcome everyone to the University of Antwerp (Belgium) on November 22nd and 23rd 2018. The central theme of this year’s conference will be Cultural Evolution. We especially welcome submissions that fit this year’s theme yet will also offer opportunities to scholars from other subfields to present their work either as an oral presentation or poster.

Abstract submission
Abstracts can be submitted online until September 15th  2018 midnight . We welcome abstracts up to 200 words.
Notifications of talk vs. poster acceptance will be send out by the end of September.
