Abstract: Our program committee is currently finalizing the program, and the line-up of plenary speakers and seminars is outstanding. Plenary speakers will include Vanessa Ezenwa, of the University of Georgia, giving a talk titled, "Parasites and Behavior: Old Ideas and New Insights". Juan Carlos Reboreda, of the University of Buenos Aires, will give his talk, "Adaptations to brood parasitism in host generalist and host specialist cowbirds". Lauren O'Connell, from Harvard University, will present, "Parenthood on the brain: neural mechanisms of piggyback rides and nursing behavior in poison frogs". As well as the ABS President's Plenary by Emília Martins of Indiana University-Bloomington. Our keynote speaker will be the eminant primatologist and ethologist, Frans de Waal, presenting his talk titled, "Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals are?". Conference Symposia will cover a range of timely topics, including: "Using Tinbergen’s Four Questions to Understand Emerging Conservation Concerns in Behavioral Toxicology", "New Frontiers in Animal Communication: In Honor of H. Carl Gerhardt", "Behavioral Genomics in Non-Model Systems", and "Comparative Canine Behavior". Other highlights include contributed papers, poster sessions, the annual graduate student Allee Award session, the Charles H. Turner workshop for undergraduates (by invitation), a Public Day, and workshops both before and after the 5 day meeting. And, of special interest to many, we plan to revive our hilarious Acaoke tradition (Academic Karaoke) during this meeting. In short, you can expect 2016 ABS conference to be intellectually stimulating but also lots of fun. So come, learn, present your latest fascinating research, attend the opening reception and final banquet, meet and make new friends, laugh - and maybe even dance! [Information of the supplier]
