The University of Vienna is one of the oldest and largest universities and research institutions in Europe. With about 94,000 national and international enrolled students, 9,500 employees including 6,600 scientists, work at the university’s 19 faculties and centres.

ESCBCs bring early-career researchers from different disciplines of animal behaviour and cognition together to present and discuss their work. The aim is to encourage MSc and PhD students to participate in and contribute to a stimulating academic discussion about recent developments in their research fields, share information and ideas, discuss current topics and problems, and enable networking.

We are proud to present four excellent plenary speakers: PD Dr. Judith Burkart (University of Zurich, Switzerland), Dr. Anna Vargáné Kis (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary), Dr. Angela Stöger (University of Vienna, Austria) & Dr. Raoul Schwing (University of Veterinary Medicine, Austria)!

The informal and friendly atmosphere at ESCBCs allows participants to create new connections and get useful feedback from academics outside of their own research group. To make the conference accessible to a wider range of students, participation is free.  See the Registration Page for information on how to sign up for the conference and for delegate selection criteria.
