Plenary speakers:

David I. Perrett is a professor of psychology at University St. Andrews (GB). He studies how we recognise facial attributes and understand actions of others. Current projects include the nature of cues in the face to attractiveness and health; the impact of childhood, parental relationships and development across puberty on mate choice in adulthood; attraction to voice and to pheromones; decoding emotional expression and deception; sharing of attention; the role of expectations and cross modal integration in understanding actions; and the use of computer graphics to enhance recognition.

Ruth Mace is a professor of evolutionary anthropology at University College of London. She is interested in evolutionary demography, life history, phylogenetic approaches to culture and language evolution, co-operation, competition, cultural transmission, and the establishment of social norms.

Christopher Stringer is a professor of anthropology at Natural History Museum in London. He is interested in descent of modern humans and endorses the theory of their African origin.
