The ISSABC is the International Student Symposium on Animal Behaviour and Cognition. We are an organisation that is run by students, for students, and as such our committee is entirely made up of student researchers.
We host an international conference biannually with a focus on animal behaviour. This conference aims to give the opportunity for students and early stage researchers to present their work to other students from around the world who are at a similar stage in their careers as an opportunity to those who might otherwise not have the opportunity at more conventional conferences which tend to focus on the work of later stage and more established researchers.
We have a heavy focus on making our conference as accessible and diverse as possible, hoping to bring the field of animal behaviour to all students regardless of their racial, educational, geographical and socioeconomic backgrounds, gender, sexual orientation or any disabilities they may have.
