Dear Colleagues, Dear friends,

On behalf of the organisation committee, I am more than happy to invite you to visit the website dedicated to the 7th European Federation for Primatology meeting, that will be hosted by the University of Strasbourg at Strasbourg in France. Please save the date:  22-25 august 2017. This meeting is organized by the University of Strasbourg, the Centre de Primatologie and  the Société Francophone de Primatologie. After Roma , Italy, this is the first time the EFP meet in France and I am sure that will be a great meeting.

This first message is to invite you to spread the words and send the below link of the website to all your contacts interested by the Primatology. You can also look for ‘EFP2017’ on google and you will find it.

                You will find in the website all the information needed to organize your venue. Please pay attention that , as usual now, there is a call  for symposium organization. I will let you refer to the scientific committee recommendations.

Further messages from EFP board  and organization committee will come soon, but for now please visit and reserve at:  EFP2017: http://www.alphavisa.com/efp/2017/index.php

Dear All,

We are pleased to invite you to the 5th Congress of the European Federation for Primatology, which will take place in Antwerp, Belgium from 10th – 13th September 2013. The congress will be organised by Antwerp University, in association with the Centre for Research and Conservation of the Royal Zoological Society of Antwerp, the University of Liège, the Free University of Brussels and the Belgian Group for Primatology.

'Primates in our hands', the general theme of the conference refers to fact that, to date, survival of many primate species lies in the hands of mankind. Therefore, sharing and exchanging scientific knowledge on all aspects of primate biology is our duty. EPF2013 wants to contribute to this goal by addressing a broad range of topics in the field of primatology, introduced by leading scientists, and ranging from conservational biology, behaviour and cognition, physiology, ecology to functional morphology. We especially encourage contributions from junior scientists, and will be offering attractive student fees.
The conference will be on the city campus of the University of Antwerp, right in the heart of Antwerp city, in a beautiful historical setting.

Kind regards,

The Scientific Committee
