Workshop on applying the STRANGE guidelines

This year’s conference will include a satellite workshop on how to apply the STRANGE guidelines (, a new framework for animal behaviour research that will help to avoid sampling bias and to improve data reproducibility. An extra (free) registration is necessary to participate in this workshop: From these registrations, we will pick several participants willing to take part in the discussion with the STRANGE authors about the issues our community often faces when reporting animal behaviour and what can be done about it. Let us know in the form if you would like to be chosen to act as one such representative of our community and interact live with the authors.
