We welcome presentations from any field related to the study of human behaviour from an evolutionary perspective (including evolutionary psychology, anthropology, and behavioural ecology, including from presenters working on non-human species, with direct implications for understanding the evolution of human behaviour).
Registration will be FREE for all attendees, whether in-person or remote, and whether presenting or not. Time slots for talks are nominally 15 minutes (although this is subject to change pending demand).
