About Measuring Behavior 2018

The 11th Measuring Behavior conference will be hosted at Manchester Metropolitan University 6th-9th June 2018. Measuring Behavior is the stage for the latest inventions, prototypes, and techniques in behavioral research. It is the premier event for scientists and practitioners involved in behavioral research, and focusses on methods, techniques, and tools in human and animal behavioral research. As well as the usual focus on animal and human behavior research methods, this year we will also be introducing some new themes, including robotics (bio-inspired robots and human-robot interactions), sport (biomechanics and human movement), and open science.

We hope that you will be able to join us to find out more.

Building bridges
Measuring Behavior is the premier interdisciplinary event for scientists and practitioners concerned with the study of human or animal behavior. This unique conference focuses on methods, techniques, and tools in behavioral research in the widest sense. While most conferences focus on a specific scientific area, this conference tries to create bridges between disciplines by bringing together people who may otherwise be unlikely to meet each other.

At a Measuring Behavior meeting, you will find yourself among researchers from all fields of behavioral research: behavioral ecologists or neuroscientists, ethologists, developmental psychologists, ergonomists, human factors researchers, movement scientists, psychiatrists, psychophysiologists, toxicologists, usability testers, and others. While the research questions and applications may be highly diverse, what all delegates share is an interest in methods, techniques and tools for the study of behavior.

We have discovered that the focus on methodological and technical themes can lead to a very productive cross-fertilization between research fields.

The Measuring Behavior conferences
Measuring Behavior 2018 will be the eleventh conference centered around methods and techniques in behavioral research. The 10th edition was held in Dublin, the first time that we ventured outside The Netherlands. As this was a great success, in 2018 we are going to be in Manchester, in the UK.
