TriState is the premiere animal learning and behavior meeting in the Midwest. This page provides a web home for the meeting.  Archival information about past meetings and available information about the upcoming meeting appear here.

TriState(Plus) provides an opportunity for investigators of animal behavior to get together regularly to discuss their work, share ideas, and generally have a good time.  The conference has occurred more or less annually since 1987, and originally involved psychologists from Indiana, Kentucky, & Ohio.  Recent meetings have drawn people from Michigan, …, and even Ontario, Canada.

The conference is loosely organized at best – even the existence of this web page bothers some regular attendees because it suggests a level of organization that does not exist.  Nonetheless, the conferences typically run smoothly and offer lots of fertile scientific discussion.

TriState normally occurs in April or May, depending on the schedule of the hosting institution.  The conference typically lasts from early afternoon on one day to lunchtime the next day.  There is no registration fee, and the host institution provides lodging, dinner, and breakfast.
