Call for Abstracts

CBEN invites abstracts for its annual meeting. The meeting is primarily intended for academics in the Low Countries who study or are interested in the study of cognition and behavior from an evolutionary perspective. However, we happily welcome participants from other countries as well. We particularly encourage junior researchers (PhD students and postdocs) to submit their work.

The evolution of cooperation and morality

The evolution of communication and language

Cognitive science of religion

Naturalistic studies of scientific development

Cognition and culture

Cultural evolution

The evolution of art

Primate studies

Developmental cognitive studies

The evolution of sex and sexual orientations

Evolutionary approaches to gender differences

The evolution of war and peace

The emergence of institutions
