PTNCE 2018 conference... is over

PTNCE 2018 conference is behind us. The organising committee would like to thank all the attendees for coming. We believe the scientific, as well as the social, content of the conference was great and hope that none of you regret attending.
We've had sixty nine people altogether at the conference including four fantastic plenary speakers and a nine-person organising team. Seven countries were represented. Women to men ratio was 1.56 (61% women and 39% men).
Four fantastic plenary talks were given: "Evolutionary perspective on women’s reproduction and health" by  Grazyna Jasienska, "MHC, mate choice and reproduction" by Jan Havlíček, "The cultural evolution of religion" by Russell Gray, and "Europe’s genetic prehistory" by Wolfgang Haak. There were twenty two regular talks, seventeen posters and one great discussion panel on public outreach concerning human evolution. 

Best student talk award went to Yitzchak Ben Mocha for his „Humans conceal sex across cultures. But why?”.
Best student poster award went to Aleksandra Poniewierska, Aleksandra Szczepańska and Mateusz Kościcki for „A synthetic view of the origins of language”.

Thank you all once again and see you in Prague next year!

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th Conference of the Polish Society for Human and Evolution Studies,
which will be held in Warsaw  between 24th and 26th of September 2018.

Polish Society for Human and Evolution Studies aims at associating scientists and students of various scientific disciplines interested in the application of the evolutionary perspective in the following research areas:
biology, ecology, human behaviour and culture studies.
By creating an idiosyncratic evolutionary platform we intend to break the barriers between
traditional divisions in human studies.
