Abstract: We are pleased to announce the 26th annual meeting of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society to be held in Natal, Brazil, July 30th - August 2nd, 2014. The venue for this conference will be the Praiamar Natal Hotel & Convention, Ponta Negra Beach. The 2014 Conference, will be held under the motto Evolution, Society, and Culture, underlying the importance of the evolutionary perspective in understanding the origins of society with all its implications. Additionally, this theme emphasizes the role of the social environment and the cultural practices that emerge from it. At our current level of knowledge, integrating comparative and cross-cultural approaches in our analyses allows us to better understand the origins, universalities and peculiarities of human nature, including the functioning of a wide range of personal, social and reproductive behaviors.
