Conferences and SBS talkfest

It’s pouring buckets outside and the cold is really starting to bite in Auckland. Luckily we’re all gearing up to disperse across the globe for a variety of conferences including:

  • The annual meeting of the Australasian Society for the Study of Animal Behaviour in Katoomba, NSW, Australia;
  • The 20th International Congress of Arachnology in Colorado, USA; and
  • The 6th congress of the International Society for Behavioral Ecology in Exeter, UK.

Consequently the School for Biological sciences’ postgraduate Talkfest yesterday was a great chance to air out our presentations ahead speaking in front of international audiences and nearly all our students participated. We wish all our members the best of luck abroad and look forward to tales of academic adventures and hijinks.
