The local organisers of the next Annual Meeting and the council of the Ethological Society e.V. have taken the difficult decision to cancel our traditional annual meeting yet again. We waited until last minute in the hope that in-person meetings might be possible in February 2022. However, we came to the conclusion that it might not be safe neither for participants nor for organisers given the current situation.

At the same time, we do not want to miss the opportunity of meeting you and learning about the great work that our community members have accomplished during the challenging last months. We also understand that our annual meetings are especially important for our early career researchers (ECR) in order to connect and receive feedback. On top, we enjoyed our first virtual meeting this year a lot and the format was well received! Thus, we decided to organise the second-best option, i.e., a virtual conference focussing on contributions from BSc-, MSc and PhD-students.

Attending and presenting at this conference will be again entirely free for everybody. All ECR in the field of Behavioural Biology are encouraged to submit an abstract for a talk. Talks will be short (5 min) and could take either a traditional form, i.e., a classic conference-style presentation, or a science slam, i.e., a presentation of any form that communicates the science in an entertaining way. Please note this a conference for everybody not just ECR. Everybody who wants to listen to and discuss exciting science with the next generation of ethologists, is encouraged to register!

We are looking forward to reading your abstracts and seeing you on Friday, the 25th of February!
Ethologische Gesellschaft e.V.

P.s.: We wish to thank Prof. Lars Lewejohann and his organising team for being so flexible and, despite it being the third attempt, being willing to organise the next annual meeting in 2023 in Berlin.
