The great apes are our evolutionary neighbors, and they are in danger.
The purpose of this symposium is threefold. The first is to exchange
information from recent studies of the great apes and the origins of human
beings. The second is direct interaction among different kinds of
researchers: those focusing on field work and those on laboratory work,
established researchers and those early in their careers, and scholars from
the West and the East. The third is to promote wildlife conservation and
animal welfare of the Great Apes by promoting international collaboration.
This symposium is the follow-up of one held in 1999 (COE/SAGA2 meeting).
The meeting in 2002 will have the same sort of quality and magnitude. However, we are aiming for a little more of a shift toward the younger generation and toward focusing on more current topics and data, especially those accumulated since the 1999 meeting.
There will be three optional post-congress tours starting on November 18.
Participants have the choice to join one of the three tours at their own
expense, although all arrangements for travel and accommodation will be made
by the Symposium organizers.
COE stands for "Center of Excellence", a program promoted by the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture, Japan. SAGA stands for the "Support for African/Asian Great Apes", a general assembly of researchers, zoo people, NPO volunteers, and media people who are concerned with the conservation and welfare of the Great Apes, our evolutionary neighbors.
