Between 7th and 10th November, 46th conference of Czech and Slovak ethological society was held in Bratislava. As usually, the event was worth the whole-year wait!
The conference started by Michal Poljak’s popular lecture about his travels in Iran. Not only we saw a lot of photos and listened to many stories, but we also learned a few tips for buying a Persian carpet and learned a few words in Farsi.
Other lectures had followed – in English on Friday, in Czech and Slovak on Saturday.
One of the plenary talks – Evolution of neuronal numbers: Moving from brain size to assessment of brain information processing capacity – by Pavel Němec.
Several people from our department had a lecture as well, one of them was Petr Tureček. His lecture was interesting right from the beginning, that is right by its name – Too much love can kill you: How many grandmas is too much grandmas?
Poster sessions and a cup of delicious coffee was a great match.
And for the final day of the conference a visit of Bratislava zoo was planned.
