We’re delighted to announce that the 9th Stickleback Conference is being held in Kyoto, Japan, 3-7 July, 2018.

The International Conference on Stickleback Behavior and Evolution attracts a large international community that uses stickleback in research. The first conference was held in 1984 in Leiden, Netherlands, where Niko Tinbergen established the ethology through his work on the threespine stickleback . Recently, the conference has been held every three years and attracts more than 100 stickleback biologists who will present papers and posters on diverse aspects of stickleback biology. Research areas cover diverse disciplines, including behavior, physiology, genetics, genomics, evolution, ecology, parasitology, and more.

We are planning to have a reception party on July 3rd and a farewell dinner on July 7th. You can enjoy visiting historic areas of Kyoto during your free time! We will provide an excursion to a stickleback habitat in a small beautiful city on July 8th.
