European Conference on Behavioural Biology

9 - 12 August 2018

Welcome to the ECBB Conference in Liverpool

Join the Evolutionary and Behavioural Biology Research Group in Liverpool for the 9th European Conference on Behavioural Biology (ECBB) from Thursday 9 August to Sunday 12 August 2018.

The conference venue is the ACC (Arena and Convention Centre), a state-of-the-art conference centre  situated on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.

Liverpool is a friendly and vibrant city with a rich history. It was awarded European Capital of Culture in 2008 and this year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of receiving this status. As a consequence there are many events across the city, so there will be plenty going on to keep you entertained. We're sure you'll enjoy exploring Liverpool and its surroundings.
