International Primate Behavior Conference

Huangshan, China

August 3-6, 2014

Hosted by Anhui University and Central Washington University

The Valley of the Wild Monkeys in Huangshan, China, has been an important site of primatological research and education. It is one of the few sites where individual primates have been studied for almost 30 years. We invite colleagues to present research on Tibetan macaques and other Old World species at this conference. The trip will also include a visit to UNESCO World Heritage site Mt. Haungshan, and a visit to the Valley of the Wild Monkeys to meet this irreplaceable group of monkeys.

The Organizing Committee for the Huangshan Symposium 2014 invites authors to submit outstanding scientific work in any area of Tibetan macaques for presentation in the Huangshan Symposium Program. If you intend to submit an oral or poster presentation abstract please read the contents of this page carefully.

There are three different session-types:

1.  Plenary Sessions: 40 minute plenary talks on the first day.

2.  Oral Sessions: oral presentations of 20 minutes each (including questions), which when possible, will be grouped together by themes.

3.  Poster Sessions: The poster sessions will take place during the symposium.

Authors should indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, which will reject abstracts that do not meet professional standards.

The Congress reserves the right to reject any abstract or proposal; the Scientific Committee will not normally enter into correspondence with submitting authors concerning rejected abstracts or proposals. Detailed guidelines for abstract preparation are given below. Abstracts may be submitted by email to

Guidelines for the Preparation of Abstracts

These guidelines are provided for general information, but are not intended to be prescriptive. As the abstracts will be published and may be cited, they should summarize your work so that your study can be understood without additional information.

1.  The abstract submission process will require you to provide institutional affiliation of presenting and any co-authors.

2.  You will also need to supply four keywords to help with indexing your abstract and which will be used to assign your presentation to appropriate reviewers and sessions at the Congress.

3.  Please use words that best reflect your subject area or species beyond those already in your title.
