Student Events

ISAE particularly welcomes students at its congresses, both PhD and master students. To enable students to gain as much as possible from participating in the congress, both scientifically and personally, we organise a series of student events in collaboration with the ISAE Student Representatives. This page will be updated with more detailed information later. You are also encouraged to follow the facebook site for ISAE Student Members: . This is used by the Student Representatives to communicate with the students about events throughout the year, including the ISAE’2019.

Welcome Reception

Join other students during the welcome reception for a student section to mix & mingle with other graduate students & gain professional development tips from your ISAE Student Representatives. The welcome reception is hosted by Bergen city on Monday 5th August at 19:00-20:00h. The event will be held in Håkonshallen hall in the old castle, not far from the congress hotel. After the official ceremony with canapees and wine, the students will meet in a nearby room for the mix & mingle gathering.

Eating with Ethologists

Students will be matched with faculty and other experienced scientists of similar interests for an informal, small group networking lunch. You can e.g. discuss a scientific topic or an aspect of your research plans, or perhaps get input to your career plans. Next summer, ISAE Student Representatives will send an e-mail to all students who have registered for the congress so you can pre-register for this event before congress.

Lunch Table Discussions

Lunch tables in rooms neighbouring the lunch restaurant will be labeled with specific topics to facilitate discussions amongst attendees with similar interests – open to all attendees of the congress. Previous topics included cognition and emotion, welfare policy, technology and welfare, play behaviour, and much more!
