Attend the 42nd ASP Meeting


The 42nd meeting of the American Society of Primatologists will take place at the Pyle Center at the University of Wisconsin, Madison from August 21-24, 2019. The meeting will feature presentations on the ecology, behavior, anatomy, welfare, physiology, neuroscience, genetics, and conservation of captive and wild primates.

ASP is a RACE accredited organization, so you can earn continuing education credits at this meeting.  We have applied for 10.0 credit hours for the conference (maximum of 8.5 can be earned by an individual due to simultaneous sessions), and another 6.5 credit hours for the pre-conference workshop.

ASP’s Primate Care Committee is offering a pre-conference workshop on Identifying and Treating Abnormal Behaviors in Nonhuman Primates. The workshop will be the afternoon of August 20 and the morning of August 21. For more information see
