Animals and Society: Striking the right balance through Ethology


The Congress of The International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) will take place in the city of Curitiba, Brazil from July 22 to 26th, 2024, on the campus of Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Parana (PUCPR).


The ISAE 2024 conference will focus on how the study of ethology can strengthen our relationships with various living systems in our environment. The conference organizers invite you to submit original proposals that address, for example, the study of ethology’s impact on the relationships involving the sustainable use of natural resources such as soil and forests, current challenges associated with climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, the health and welfare of humans and animals, and the impact of ethology on agriculture, conservation and technology.

The eagerly awaited conference focuses on the interrelationships of scientific disciplines studying the behavior of living systems in the environment. Scholars and researchers worldwide are invited to explore the intricate connections between animals, humans, and their surroundings, aiming for a profound understanding of the natural world's complexities. Promoting collaboration, the event welcomes participants from diverse backgrounds, including scientific associations, companies, public authorities, institutes, and universities – both national and international. Together, we strive to address current challenges and build a sustainable future, fostering harmonious relationships between living systems and their environment
