Dear All,We are pleased to invite you to the 5th Congress of the European Federation for Primatology, which will take place in Antwerp, Belgium from 10th – 13th September 2013. The congress will be organised by Antwerp University, in association with the Centre for Research and Conservation of the Royal Zoological Society of Antwerp, the University of Liège, the Free University of Brussels and the Belgian Group for Primatology.
'Primates in our hands', the general theme of the conference refers to fact that, to date, survival of many primate species lies in the hands of mankind. Therefore, sharing and exchanging scientific knowledge on all aspects of primate biology is our duty. EPF2013 wants to contribute to this goal by addressing a broad range of topics in the field of primatology, introduced by leading scientists, and ranging from conservational biology, behaviour and cognition, physiology, ecology to functional morphology. We especially encourage contributions from junior scientists, and will be offering attractive student fees.
The conference will be on the city campus of the University of Antwerp, right in the heart of Antwerp city, in a beautiful historical setting. Antwerp can be easily reached by public transport from all major destinations in Europe. There is a range of hotels close to the University Campus, and plenty of pubs and restaurants in the area.
More details will be posted here as they become available on this website (www.efp2013.org). We sincerely hope that you will join us for this EFP congress and look forward to seeing you in Antwerp next year.
