Measuring Behavior 2018 – Call for Symposia & Workshops
Measuring Behavior is the premier interdisciplinary event for scientists and practitioners concerned with the study of human or animal behavior. This unique community and its conference focuses on the latest methods, techniques and tools in behavioral research in its widest sense.
We are delighted to be hosting the conference at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, in 2018 and welcome proposals for workshops and symposia on subjects related to methods development and new behavioral techniques. We are especially interested in hearing about the latest techniques in measuring animal and human behaviors. We will have special focus sessions techniques for measuring animal movement, human movement, sport and robotics, reflecting the strengths of this research in the North West of England.
Call for Symposia & Workshops
The Scientific Program Committee now invites you to submit Symposia & Workshops proposals for Measuring Behavior 2018.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please send an outline of 1 page to us (MB2018@measuringbehavior.org), including a title, a 1 paragraph summary, and 4-5 suggested speakers, by September 15th 2018.
Submission is open for:
- Symposia: Sessions organized around a specific topic and organized by a symposium chair. The symposium chair oversees the paper review process; accepted papers are presented in the symposium. Submitted papers will be blind reviewed by theMeasuring Behavior reviewing committee.
- Workshops: Sessions dedicated to hosting interactive discussions about novel topics in Measuring Behavior organized by a workshop chair. Successful workshops are typically based around a new or disruptive concept or demonstration of new technologies or methodologies. Submissions are especially encouraged from industry and research centres.
The conference is open for any topic related to the measurement of the behavior of people and animals. The focus should be on tools and methods, not on results. To get an idea of the topics we are expecting, see http://www.measuringbehavior.org/mb2018/topics.
If you are not sure if your idea fits, feel free to contact us (MB2018@measuringbehavior.org) to discuss it informally.
The conference will take place in Manchester UK, June 5th-8th, 2018. The venue is the Business School at Manchester Metropolitan University, a well-equipped and modern building on the Oxford Road corridor, only a five-minute walk from Oxford Road railway station. As well as the scientific program, there will also be attractive social events.
