Behaviour, 2023
14 August – 20 August 2023, Bielefeld, Germany

The Bielefeld team is delighted and honoured to host the Behaviour 2023 conference in Bielefeld between the 14th and 20th of August 2023. After two years of rather restricted scientific get-togethers, the organisers very much hope you will be coming to experience a week of frantic scientific activity. Bielefeld hosted the International Ethologicial Congress, as it was known back then, once before in 1977 and the organisers are thrilled to try their best to make 2023 an equally exciting and stimulating event. To make this conference as integrative as possible, they aim to offer comparatively low conference fees and ensure inclusivity and accessibility during the conference. Please make sure to regularly check for updates on plenary speakers, symposia and other information on their website or directly sign up for their newsletter there. Make sure to also follow them on twitter (@2023behaviour) or Facebook (Behaviour 2023) for the latest news and updates and to share your excitement with them on social media.
