ASP 2011 abstract deadline announced

The American Society of Primatologists holds its annual meeting this year in AUSTIN, TEXAS (woo-hoo!), September 16-19, 2011. Some adjustments to perviously outlined deadlines are outlined below:


The Program Committee of the American Society of Primatologists would like to extend the deadline to Friday, January 28, 2011 for proposals for symposia and workshops. Although the final deadline for symposia, workshop, and paper abstracts is March 12, 2011, we encourage early submission of ideas to ensure a strong meeting. Proposals can be sent to the Program Committee Chair, Sue Howell (

Additionally the Program Committee invites interested parties to submit proposals for the 2011 ASP Interdisciplinary Symposium.

The Interdisciplinary symposium was created to foster the levels of crosstalk among the different disciplines that make up Primatology. You are invited to submit your ideas for a symposium that is truly interdisciplinary. The program committee will encourage all submitted ideas to be presented as symposia at ASP 2011 in Austin, Texas, September 16 – 19th 2011. However one idea will be chosen to be showcased in a meeting-wide symposium, meaning there will be no competing sessions during your symposium. Additionally, the interdisciplinary symposium will be presented in conjunction with one of the featured plenary speakers for ASP 2010.

To be considered:
Submit a short summary of your proposal that highlights how it is interdisciplinary.
Submit a list of proposed speakers for the symposia, including second choices, if appropriate.
Propose both a first and second choice for the featured speaker you would like to see invited by ASP to participate in association with the symposium.
Send all your materials to ASP Program Co-Chair, Brian Kelly ( no later than February 1, 2011.
All ideas will be encouraged for development as regular symposia. Final abstracts for regular symposia, workshops and other special sessions will continue to be accepted until March 12, 2011.

We look forward to your ideas.


The Program Committee
