Conference on comparative social cognition

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION AT THE OPENING CONFERENCE ON COMPARATIVE SOCIAL COGNITION

The ESF Research Networking Programme "The Evolution of Social Cognition" (CompCog) (www.compcog.org) is proud to announce its opening meeting in Budapest, 13-16 May 2009.

Thanks to the support of leading scientists from around the world we have managed to put together an exciting program that covers many interesting areas of comparative social cognition with emphasis on

SOCIAL GENES, SOCIAL BRAINS AND SOCIAL MINDS

This is a call for scientists interested in the field to come to this meeting. There will be no registration fees, but participants have to cover their costs. We are happy to help in organising the travel as well as the accommodation through our partner company, Chemoltravel.

To celebrate this event and to support the best young and enthusiastic researchers in their early career our budget allows for providing financial support for 35 participants (Note that the support for travel costs is 250 Euros). Twenty applicants will also get the possibility to present their research in a short oral paper, others will have the opportunity to bring a poster.

In order to apply, we need applications by the 5th April 2009. Applicants are asked to fill in a form, with a brief CV, their research interest, and proposed abstract. All applications will be considered but there will be a preference for those that are judged to relate closer to the main topics of the meeting. Please consult the preliminary program.

Applications and any other correspondence should be sent to:

esf.conference2009@gmail.com

There is a limit for the total number of participants to 120 people. Apart from the supported applications other participants will be accepted on a "first come first served" basis. Therefore participation is bound to prior registration by sending in the following form. Participants will be informed whether their registration is accepted.

We are looking forward seeing you in Budapest.
