Dear colleagues, 


We are excited to announce and invite you to attend the upcoming Apes and
Dolphins Seminar series. This three part seminar series will explore the
scientific and ethical issues surrounding the study of language and
intelligence in apes and dolphins. The first seminar in the series, titled
"Why can't apes and dolphins talk? Communication and language research with
apes and dolphins," will take place on April 13th from 10:00 to 17:00 at the
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in The Netherlands. This day-long seminar will
be led by ape language researcher Esteban Rivas from the Institute for
Animals in Philosophy and Science, and dolphin communication researcher
Justin Gregg from the Dolphin Communication Project, and features lectures
covering the study of apes' and dolphins' natural communication systems and
the nature of the information they share with each other, as well as the
many experiments that have been conducted to teach apes and dolphins to use
artificial symbol systems. The seminar will cover the history of the field,
current research topics, and future directions, and we encourage a healthy
discussion and debate on these subjects throughout the day.
