The ISAE2016 is held at the White Oaks Conference Resort in Niagara-on-the-Lake , October 11-14, 2016.

ISAE is an event which takes place every four years in a rotation system between Asia, Europe, and America, and is dedicated to showcase up-to-date advancements in the field of avian endocrinology, while bringing together scientists from all over the world. With a combination of plenary lectures, symposia, and poster sessions, ISAE2016 is the ideal venue to meet other scientists and exchange information on a wide range of avian species. Topics discussed include, endocrinology of behaviour, endocrine disruptors, neuro-endocrine control of reproduction, feeding and metabolism, circadian rhythms and clock genes.

The IAP consortium decided to actively participate in this meeting on different levels.

Jacques Balthazart will reach the age of 65 next year on June 29, 2014 and according to the Belgian rules will have to retire from all his official functions at the University of Liege, though he is not planning to end his scientific career at this point. On this occasion, we would like to celebrate him and organize for another (last?) time an International Conference on Hormones, Brain and Behavior (ICHBB) in the tradition that he had initiated in the mid-eighties.

The conference will include 6 symposia  including each 4 invited talks and 3 plenary lectures (See program). In addition, a few shorter contributed talks will be included in the symposia and all participants will be able to present posters describing their recent work.
