SPARCS is a non-profit organization that has a 2 pronged mission: to help provide funding for graduate students studying canine cognition and to provide an annual conference with the leading canine cognition scientists that is available worldwide, free of charge.  


The 2015 conference features a roster of presenters that reads like a Who's Who of Canine Cognition: Alexandra Horowitz, Ph.D., Hal Herzog, Ph.D., Adam Mikloski, Ph.D., (just to name a few).    Topics range from Back to the Future: Mental Time Travel in Animals to Does Stress Make You Stupid?  


Each of the 3 days is organized by topic:

Friday, June 19: Learning and Memory

Saturday, June 20: Dogs Around the World

Sunday, June 21: Stress: Physiology, Cognition, and Behavior
