Announcing NEEPS 2015
The NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society presents the 2015 Conference on Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences, hosted by the Department of Psychology at Suffolk University in Boston, MA, April 9-12. The conference will combine a decidedly New England charm with a big-city feel. Steven Pinker and Felix Warneken, both of Harvard University, will give invited talks. David Sloan Wilson (Binghamton University) will lead a panel on clinical applications of evolutionary theory. Additional invited speakers TBA. The conference will include a panel discussing developmental issues and submissions relating to this topic are encouraged but not required. We expect representation from a wide range of disciplines, methods, and topics, as with previous conferences. Affiliated meetings will include Applied Evolutionary Psychology Society (AEPS), Feminist Evolutionary Perspectives Society (FEPS), and Kids Evolutionary Perspectives Society (KEPS).
The site for abstract submission is currently open and the submission deadline is November 15th (11:59 pm), see URL below. Please note that you can now submit proposals for Oral presentations, Poster presentations, and Symposiums. We are also using 500-1000 word structured abstracts for reviews of Oral and Poster presentation proposals; Background, Hypothesis/Hypotheses, Method, Results, and Conclusion. Symposium proposals should be a 500-1000 word descriptive overview. Please also create a 120 word abstract for inclusion in the conference program. Please encourage your friends, students, and colleagues to participate.
Conference Organizer: Daniel Glass

APA to Publish JSEC Under New Title, Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences
As of the January 2014 issue, the Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology (JSEC) will be published by the American Psychological Association under the new title, Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences. EBS will continue to be the official journal of the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS), and will maintain its current mission of promoting science that advances the study of human behavior from an evolutionary perspective, with an emphasis on work that integrates evolutionary theory with other approaches and perspectives from across the behavioral sciences. A full press release is available here. As part of the transition, there is a new EBS website, where visitors can learn more about the journal, and contributors can soon submit manuscripts via an online portal.
