Great strides have been made in understanding the mechanisms underlying collective behaviour in animals using the complex systems approach common in the physical sciences. This work however focuses on snapshots of collective behaviour. The goal of this meeting is to integrate the study of collective behaviour over time: how does it develop and how does it evolve?

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recordings of the talks will be available after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in an issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
