We invite early career researchers, especially PhD students and postdocs from all disciplines that study the cognition and behavior of human and non-human animals (including but not restricted to psychology, cognitive science, evolutionary biology, animal cognition, and behavioral ecology) to apply here

We will be able to accept 30 participants. The selection of participants will be based on their submitted statements of motivation.

Besides the workshop session, we will provide accommodation, lunches, a welcome reception, and a goodbye dinner for all participants. Participants need to pay and organize their travel.



We invite all applicants to contribute a poster presentation (A0, portrait). Posters will be on display during the entire workshop; a dedicated poster session with a welcome reception will take place on the second and third day of the workshop.

Contributors are asked to submit title, author list and abstract (max. 2500 characters including spaces) within the application form.

Applicants will be informed about the selection process results on April 30th, 2022; notifications will be sent by email.
