In the last thirty-five years, the study of human culture using evolutionary tools has exploded. Where once evolutionary models had been scarce, such methods are now used throughout the social sciences: in anthropology, linguistics, history and economics. Indeed, these evolutionary social sciences now constitute a mature field of research. There are institutions for research into the evolution of human culture, and new research societies promising dedicated journals to the study of cultural evolution.
Yet within the evolutionary social sciences – however mature – there is room for exploration, for new methods, and new approaches. This conference gathers together researchers working at the cutting-edge of the field, and will open dialogues on the as-of-yet unanswered issues at the heart of social science and cultural evolution. Progress on these issues will require the conjoined efforts of a wide range of disciplines whose natural home is not in the social sciences: archaeologists, mathematicians, geneticists, primatologists, and more besides.

As in previous years, ISBE 2016 at the University of Exeter will include an extra day after the main conference to host up to 10 small, themed symposia. We are now inviting proposals for these symposia.
We will host up to 10 concurrent symposia on Weds 3rd August 2016, immediately following the main conference (29th July – 2nd August). Each symposium should focus on an issue of current relevance and interest within behavioural ecology as broadly defined.

From 27–28 February 2016, Brisbane will play host to an exciting gathering of economic and evolutionary thinkers who will explore the potential for a closer synthesis between evolution and economics in order to understand both the economics and biology of behaviour in contest.
The Economics and Biology of Contests Conference aims to bring together leading economists, psychologists and evolutionary biologists to explore contest behaviour in economic, political and social environments. The conference will provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss the economic, psychological and evolutionary biology approaches to this topic, explore common ground and identify collaborative opportunities.
The call for papers is now open and will close 16 November 2015. Submit your abstract via email@example.com
The Cognition, Behavior and Evolution Network unites scholars working in the fields of evolutionary psychology, behavioral ecology, human biology, primatology, and cultural evolution. CBEN organizes a conference next month, “Evolutionary Psychology & Primatology in the Low Countries”, which will be held in Amsterdam on April 16th and April 17th. More information about CBEN and its conference can be found at our new website http://www.cognitionbehaviorevolution.nl.
Please consider submitting an abstract for a poster, presentation, or organized symposium to the 27th Human Behavior and Evolution Society (HBES) Conference. HBES is the premier international organization for the study of evolution and human behavior. The membership includes researchers from a range of disciplines in the social, behavioral, and biological sciences. HBES publishes the journal Evolution and Human Behavior and holds an annual conference.

6th FPR-UCLA Interdisciplinary Conference
October 23-24, 2015, UCLA
This conference occurs at a critical juncture in sex/gender research in neuroscience, anthropology, psychology, and related disciplines. New theories are utilizing a conception of the brain as dynamic, plastic, and adaptable, and of sex/gender brain and behavioral differences as subject to the influence of a broad range of biological, cultural, and social or environmental factors.
