11 - 13 January, 2019 | IISER - Kolkata

Welcome to Understanding Behaviour 2019! This conference aims to bring together researchers interested in studying different aspects of behaviour across scales. Behaviour is ubiquitous, and can be studied at various levels of organization, from single molecules to populations, using tools as diverse as microscopy, field observations and mathematical modelling. The key concept of Understanding Behaviour 2019 is to showcase cutting edge behavioural research across disciplines, not limited to the confines of animal behaviour alone. We hope this conference will not only provide a platform to share knowledge, but also serve to establish networks between the participants, promoting exchange of ideas and future collaborations.

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata is a relatively new, premiere teaching and research institute, founded by the Government of India. The flagship program of the institute is a 5-year dual degree BS-MS program, which attracts some of the brightest students of the country. The sprawling green campus is home to a large number of birds and butterflies and is buzzing with activities all day. The campus is away from the bustle of the city but can be reached in 60-90 minutes from the airport, depending on the time of day. Come and enjoy the beautiful weather in January, enjoy the campus and the local cuisine, and engage in discussions that extend beyond the sessions!
