The First Conference of Polish Society for Human and Evolution Studies (PTNCE) was held on 23-25 October 2014 in Wrocław. The conference was entitled Humans in the Evolutionary Perspective and was organised by PTNCE and the Department of Human Biology at University of Wrocław. The Conference was held in Collegium Anthropologicum in Kuźnicza 35 Street, building D1 of the Faculty of Law, Administration and Economics.
The Organising Committee was chaired by Prof. Bogusław Pawłowski, Head of the Department of Human Biology at the University of Wroclaw.
Nearly 80 participants from different countries took part in the conference, but a majority of them came from Poland, the Czech Republic and the UK (there were also participants from Germany, and even Australia). The conference had a thoroughly interdisciplinary character. This was due to the fact that the aim of PTNCE is to associate researchers from different scientific disciplines who are interested in the evolutionary perspective in research in biology, ecology, and human culture and behaviour.
The conference was opened in the Hall of Leopoldin by Vice Rector for Scientific Research and International Cooperation, Prof. Adam Jezierski.
Plenary lectures were delivered by: David Perrett, Ruth Mace and Chris Stringer.
