Details:

The International Society for Human Ethology will hold its 4th Biennial Summer Institute on Human Ethology at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, USA, on 6-9 August, 2013. ISHE Summer Institutes are specifically designed to be more student friendly than many other scientific conferences, and include generous financial support for student participants (such as free registration and lodging stipends for students who are first author presenters of accepted proposals).

Although submissions on all relevant topics are welcome, there will be special sessions on the application of evolutionary theory to practical issues and real-world challenges, including health. The 2013 academic program will include several invited speakers, workshops targeted at graduate students and other researchers, oral presentations, and a poster session. The cultural program will include a dinner, field trips, and extra-curricular activities. The Human Ethology Bulletin expects to publish a special issue containing peer-reviewed papers based on presentations at the 2013 Summer Institute.
