University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University look forward to hosting you at the EFP-PSGB Conference 2019
The theme of the conference, “Our Primate Heritage, Our Primate Legacy” celebrates this collaboration between the two universities, bringing together their key research interests. Spread over four days and multiple venues in an iconic city, the conference promises five excellent keynote speakers and a full program of talks, posters, workshops, and symposia, as well as a banquet in an Oxford college.
Information about registration, abstract submission, conference facilities and more.
You can register here to secure your place for the EFP-PSGB Conference 2019. There is just one ticket price for this conference; registration costs £125 and includes a banquet at St Hugh’s College on Tuesday 10th September for the first 160 people to register. Above this limit, further registrations are welcome, but attendees will not receive the banquet as part of their conference package.
If you are interested in showcasing your research at the conference, through a presentation, poster, symposium, or workshop, please use the abstract submission forms which can be downloaded from the home page of this website. Registration for the conference is required before you can submit an abstract. Abstract Guidelines and Submission
Deadline for abstract submission: 10th May
Abstracts of individual presentations either for Symposium, Podium or Poster Sessions should include: • Title. With each word capitalized. • Author(s) - first name, last name. • Institution(s) - institution, city and country of each author and indication. of which author belongs to which institution (using the superscripts a, b, c, …). • E-Mail of the first Author. • The abstract should not exceed 2000 characters including spaces (approx. 350 words).
ATTENTION: The format should follow Folia Primatologica guidelines. Please find examples in the following link: Karger guidelines
More especially, please pay attention to the following points:
• Each word in the title starts with an upper case letter and is in bold. • Names of authors are in italics. • Indicate address for each author. • Indicate the email of the main author - just one email is needed. • No figures, tables or references are allowed. • All numbers should be numerals not written, except at the start of a sentence. • UK English should be used throughout.
Studies should complied with the European Directive 2010/63/EU and/or the International Primatological Society (IPS) Guidelines for the Use of Nonhuman Primates in Research and, when applicable, specify the name/number of the protocols approved by institutional/governmental committees. However, the abstracts in Folia Primatologica don’t need to say they follow ethical guidelines.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee that has the right to either refuse an abstract that do not meet professional standards or to designate it as oral or poster, and to choose a suitable session for its presentation. When possible the Scientific Committee will try to comply with authors requests.
The Scientific Committee will not normally enter into correspondence with submitting authors concerning rejected abstracts or proposals.

There are two nearby poster printing locations in Oxford: Brookes Print (for Oxford Brookes), and Oxford Print Centre (for the city centre/Maths Institute). If you choose to use these services, we recommend that you contact them in advance to ensure that your poster is printed and ready to be picked up on time for your presentation.
ANNOUNCEMENT: we have decided to extend the student bursary deadline to APRIL 15th, 5pm GMT.
Students, if you would like to present your work at the conference but are unable to cover the costs of registration and accommodation, there are a limited number of bursaries available.
The two full days of the conference will take place in the Mathematical Institute. Tea, coffee, and snacks will be provided, but see the maps for restaurants and lunch spots around the venue.
The organising committee is conducting a brief survey to gauge interest in childcare being provided at the conference. Please take a moment to complete our survey.
In addition to conference-provided childcare, the buildings where the conference will take place host a variety of facilities to make life easier for conference attendees with young children. The Maths Institute contains nappy changing stations and access to a quiet room upon request. The MI also contains keycard accessible lifts which can accommodate prams. St Hugh’s College and Oxford Brookes are similarly accommodating.
Finally, Oxford Sitters, a child-minding service endorsed by the University of Oxford, is able to provide individual childcare for parents at a charge of £15 per booking, and an additional £10 per hour paid directly to the sitter. For more information, please visit Oxford Sitters. If you have any further questions regarding childcare, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or using the site’s contact form.
Both the Maths Institute and Oxford Brookes are wheelchair accessible. Entrance to the banquet at St Hugh’s College is also accessible, although not all accommodation is, so please request a wheelchair accessible room when you book. All three buildings contain wheelchair accessible and gender neutral toilets. The Maths Institute has a lift that is accessible through keycards; please let us know if you will need to use the lift, and a keycard will be provided to you. The Maths Institute also has hearing aid loops installed in all lecture theatres, and a quiet room accessible upon request.
We adhere to the PSGB policy on inclusion. You can read more about it here.
Code of Conduct
At EFP-PSGB 2019, we believe that an attending body representing diverse backgrounds, people and topics promotes an environment of learning and knowledge exchange. The EFP-PSGB 2019 conference operates as a platform for an open and respectful exchange and discussion of research and ideas within a respectful and tolerant community. We expect all participants to treat each other with respect and dignity, and without discrimination or harassment of any kind.
You can learn more about our Code of Conduct here.
Are there different rates for students/members? No, all the tickets will be priced at £125 and this will be a set price that includes the banquet for the first 160 people that register.
When is the deadline for registration? Registration will close when we reach capacity, so be sure to book ASAP to be guaranteed a ticket. If you want to present your work, you must submit an abstract by Friday 10th May.
Where is the banquet being held? The banquet will be held at St. Hugh’s college on St. Margaret’s Rd on Monday 10th September and will be a formal 3 course dinner with drinks included. The banquet is included in the cost of the conference ticket for the first 160 people. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children at the banquet.
What if I don’t want to attend the banquet? If you are one of the first 160 people to get a conference ticket and therefore obtain a banquet ticket, but you do not want to attend, you will be able to pass on your banquet ticket to another person who would like to go.
How do I travel from Oxford Brookes University to the Oxford Mathematics Department? The events at Oxford Brookes University and the Mathematics Department will be on different days, so there should be no need to travel between these places on the same day. However, depending on where you are staying you may need to use the bus services that run in Oxford. OxfordBus has timetables of buses throughout Oxford and you can see the locations of Oxford Brookes University and the Mathematics Department on the Venues section of our website.
What do I need to bring? We will not be providing water bottles or coffee cups, so we recommend that you bring these with you. Some notepads and pens will be available upon request, but they will not be distributed to each attendee
When are the deadlines for bursary applications and abstract submission? Bursary applications will close 5pm GMT on 1st April, 2019. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday 10th May 2019.
What is the conference hashtag? Use the hashtags #efp2019 and #efpoxford2019 to tweet about the conference. The conference twitter account can be found at @efppsgb2019
Refund policy We can refund up to 97% of the ticket price until the 1st of July. After that date we do not offer any refunds.
We offer a special coupon code to acquire accommodation at St Hugh’s college, close to the center of Oxford.
The St Hugh’s college is located close to city center and The Mathematical Institute (where the talks will occur). The college has agreed to offer nearly 200 rooms at a cheaper price, and the deadline has now been extended to August 31st. Please book soon to secure a room. Guests can book accommodation direct via their website: Accommodation at St Hugh’s
Information on how to find places to stay in Oxford.
If you are unable to get a room at St Hughs’ College, we recommend using Booking.com or other similar services to find accommodation at Oxford during the conference days (8 to 11 of September). It is not always easy to find central and affordable accommodation in Oxford, so we recommend you take care of this as soon as possible.
You can also check this list of Best hotels in Oxford. For those looking for other alternatives, there is an independent ‘open doors’ initiative started by conference attendees on Facebook, aimed at helping delegates in need of free accommodation.
