23-25 August 2021

Queen's University Belfast

This year the meeting is being organised by Domhnall Jennings, Gareth Arnott and Hansjoerg Kunc at the School of Biological Sciences, Queen's University, Belfast, with help from other PIs and post-graduates in the department working on animal behaviour.

ASAB Summer meetings generally have a broad subject theme as a guide. This year we have settled on Co-operation and Competition as our theme as it reflects some of the interests of the staff here at QUB.


If you feel that your interests lie in these areas then please submit an abstract for a talk or poster.

As with all ASAB meetings, researchers of any aspect of animal behaviour are very welcome to attend.

Key dates for your diary:

Abstract deadline is 25th June 2021

Registration closes on the 15th of August 2021
