The Human Behavior and Evolution Society (HBES) is the main professional organization for evolutionary social scientists. It got started some 30 years ago, when a few sociobiologists at three or four universities annually loaded up their students into car caravans and met at one university to share their research. This year’s meeting in Amsterdam had more than 500 participants. In the past three decades, evolutionary studies in human behavior has grown from a few relatively isolated, pioneering scientists to a world-wide network of graduate programs and institutes.
