European Conference on Behavioural Biology

External Event - 9th to 12th Aug 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.
