Presentation

Interdisciplinary views about the evolution of humans and primates

The 6th Iberian Primatological Conference of both the Asociación Primatológica Española (APE) and the Associação Portuguesa de Primatologia (APP) will be held in Burgos (Spain) from October 4-7, 2017 organized by the APP in collaboration with the Laboratorio de Evolución Humana (LEH) from the Universidad de Burgos.

The aim of the conference is to encourage the exchange of experience among the different branches of Primatology, facilitate communication between participants and act as a forum to reflect on the communication between the disciplines of primatology and human evolution.

The plenary sessions will focus on the analysis and presentation of the latest trends, knowledge and experience in the field of cognition and neuroscience, primate archaeology, anthropology, as well as the interaction and feedback between studies. The conference is also open to all those persons working in others area of primatology, with primates in both in captivity and in the wild.

One of the main reasons for the conference will be to open up the forum to the largest number of communications, both those by senior researchers as well as by students or researchers in training, regardless of the theme or study species. On behalf of both the Organizing Committee and the Asociación Primatológica Española, we encourage you to participate and present the lastest results of your projects and research at this Congress.

We hope to welcome you soon to Burgos!

President of the APE
