XXVth congress of the International Primatological Society in Hanoi, Vietnam

APIES fielded a team in Vietnam

APIES fielded a team of six, including the group’s four doctoral students (Curswan Andrews, Derick Forbanka, Ntuthu Makhasi and Haja Rambeloarivony), to attend the XXVth congress of the International Primatological Society in Hanoi, Vietnam, from 11 – 16 August 2014.  Each APIES participant made at least one oral presentation. Judith Masters and French collaborator Sébastien Couette co-hosted a symposium on strepsirhine evolution and biogeography.  The programme was spread over five days, running from 7:00 am to 9:00 or 10:00 pm each day, with up to 8 concurrent sessions. Despite this schedule, we found time to renew old acquaintances and to meet new friends and future collaborators, examiners and/or reviewers; and Hanoi, and the limited parts of Vietnam we saw, proved to be endlessly fascinating, offering some of the most outstanding natural beauty, novel and exquisite cuisine, and the friendliest, most welcoming people we have ever encountered.  Even the 40°C + temperatures and nigh-on saturated humidity – to say nothing of the armadas of anarchic motorcyclists – could not keep us from exploring this incredible place.  It was an experience to reflect on and dream about for years to come.
