Call for Proposals:


6th International Conference on Methods and Techniques in Behavioral

Maastricht, The Netherlands

26-29 August 2008

Measuring Behavior 2008, the 6th International Conference on Methods and
Techniques in Behavioral Research, is the premier interdisciplinary
event for scientists and practitioners concerned with the study of human
or animal behavior. This unique conference focuses on methods,
techniques and tools in behavioral research in the widest sense, from
behavioral ecology to neuroscience and from psychology to ergonomics. In
doing so, Measuring Behavior responds to a growing need to cross
disciplines and create bridges between them; the increasing number of
participants in previous meetings shows the great success of this
interaction between research fields. Measuring Behavior 2008 contains a
number of novel elements compared with previous meetings, including
Workshops, compensation for tutorial instructors, and a Demonstration
Showcase with a prize for the most innovative demonstration.


The Scientific Program Committee now invites you to submit abstracts for
oral papers, posters, and other program elements. Take this opportunity
to present your novel methods, techniques, and tools to an
interdisciplinary scientific community, or to organize a session
dedicated to a breakthrough technology. Presentations should deal with
newly developed research methods, techniques or tools, or novel
applications of existing techniques.
