The evolution of social behaviour has been a core research topic of Michael Taborsky throughout his scientific career. On occasion of his retirement we bring together leading experts in this field and many of Michael’s former PhD-students and postdocs, on the one hand to take stock of the subject and on the other hand to highlight the diversity of research themes former collaborators have meanwhile adopted.
On the evening of the arrival day, Thursday September 9th 2021, Michael will submit his own view of the topic, which will be followed by a reception in town. On Friday September 10th the invited keynote speakers and former collaborators will present their research, with ample time and opportunity for discussion. In the evening we shall have a BBQ at the Hasli for a relaxing get-together and, weather allowing, for the possibility of dip in the river Aare. On Saturday September 11th we shall move to the nearby mountains for a stimulating hike, lively discussions and staggering views.
