Abstracts and Program Update - Conference Evolution and Human Behavior Low Countries - April 25 2014
The deadline to submit an abstract for the second edition of the Evolution & Human Behavior in the Low Countries conference (taking place April 25 2014) is approaching: January 31st 2014 we close this call.
We have also updated the program a little.
First of all, we are happy to announce that Prof. dr. Mark van Vugt (VU Amsterdam) will give a plenary talk titled “Evolutionary Perspectives on Prosocial Behavior: Adaptations, Mistakes, and Byproducts.” In this presentation he will analyze helping and prosocial behavior from an evolutionary perspective, and draw three conclusions that are not yet part of the mainstream literature. First, human prosociality consists of a constellation of traits and behaviors, many of which are not puzzling from an evolutionary perspective. Second, not all prosocial behaviors are evolutionarily adaptive, some are mistakes, and others are byproducts of other traits. Third, understanding the evolved functions and psychological processes may facilitate and stimulate helping behavior in society. He will conclude by noting some current challenges in the analysis of human prosociality from an evolutionary perspective.
Second, The aim of this workshop is also to open up opportunities for future collaborations. Therefore we shall offer the opportunity to all attendees (including those who are not presenting) to briefly introduce themselves before the lunch break, during what we called “Introduction Talks”. Those who are interested in such a brief presentation are asked to prepare a 2-minute introduction of a specific research area/project for which collaboration with other partners/countries is sought. This may be accompanied by 1 or 2 slides (please bring these on a USB-stick).

With great pleasure we announce that a second edition of the Evolution & Human Behavior in the Low Countries conference will take place April 25 2014 at the University of Antwerp. Last year was a great opportunity to meet new colleagues within this interdisciplinary field, and we hope to achieve this again this year, despite the fact that it was not possible to organize it as a pre- or post-conference of the EHBEA conference.
We have decided to work with two central themes this year: Evolution & Prosociality and Evolution, Media & Culture. We invite everyone to submit abstracts that fit into one of these themes. Abstracts are due by January 31st and can be submitted via the website below. More information about this conference and practical information can also be found on this website which will be updated as soon as new information is available.
The conference will take place at the City Campus of the University of Antwerp, located in the centre of the city of Antwerp. Participation is entirely free, and can also be done via the website.
