and techniques." --- Mark Rutter, Institute of Grassland & Environmental Research

relatively disparate disciplines approach very similar methodological and analytical
challenges." --- Paul Mundell, Canine Companions for Independence, Santa Rosa, CA,

meeting!" --- Thomas Jensen, Department of Behavioral Pharmacology, Novo Nordisk A/S,

Psychology, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.
- "The opportunity to present my current work to other, like-minded, scientists was
exhilarating. [...] The conference, the setting, and your staff were excellent.
You found a beautiful site, invited group of diverse scientists, and coordinated the
entire event with a superb staff. [...] I look forward to seeing you in the future."
--- William Griffin, Marital Interaction Lab, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, U.S.A.

- "Methodology is particularly important in the biological sciences, because of the
complexity of the subject matter. Noldus provides the perfect venue because of its focus
on the latest technological support for behavioral sciences." --- Annie Weaver, Living
Links Center, Emory University, Atlanta, GA, U.S.A.
- "This conference provides a wonderful opportunity to shop for methods for some specific
question. I exchanged ideas with other researchers who have tried and tested other methods
that I did not even know I needed, but will now implement in my future research design."
--- Melissa Gerald, Department of Anthropology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA,
- "This conference provided an excellent occasion for learning about both new methods and
new technologies for behavioral research." --- Maria Boccia, Observational Methods Core,
Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill,

people, the helpful comments of colleagues, the training facilities, working myself on the
systems, the video digitization service. In these four days I learned more about doing
research than in the past four years at the university. The help of professionals from so
many different fields made it possible to get a research design which will work." ---

same technology as I am." --- Stephen Ellwood, Wildlife Conservation Research Unit,
Department of Zoology, Oxford University, Oxford, U.K.
