We would like to invite you to the 59th annual meeting of Primates Studies hosted by Japan Monkey Centre (JMC). The annual meeting of Primates Studies has been in symposium-style with a specific theme since the 30th annual meeting in 1985, at the time of the birth of Primate Society of Japan. From April 2014, Japan Monkey Centre (JMC) became a ‘Public Interest Incorporated Foundation’. To mark our new endeavor, we would like to go back to the original and hold this year's annual meeting in conference-style.
The main missions of Japan Monkey Centre (JMC) are to promote research, conservation, environmental education on nonhuman primates as well as zoo installation in the light of animal welfare. This year’s annual meeting will offer a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion by having speakers from the various fields including primatology, conservation biology, wildlife biology, museology, and zoo science .
The annual meeting welcomes your attendance, with/without presentation. We are looking forward to presentations related to research, education, conservation and welfare in primatology.
