Dr. Seeley received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Dartmouth College.   He received his PhD in 1978 from Harvard University, where he studied with Bert Hölldobler and Edward O. Wilson.   He held a postdoctoral fellowship in the Society of Fellows at Harvard until 1980, when he accepted a faculty position at Yale University.  He remained there until 1986, when he joined the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University.

In recognition of his scientific work, he has received the Alexander von Humboldt Distinguished U.S. Scientist Prize, been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, received a Gold Medal Book Award from Apimondia for The Wisdom of the Hive, and been elected a Fellow of both the Animal Behavior Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  His most enduring honor, though, is to have had a species of bee named after him: Neocorynurella seeleyi

Times are still being finalized so know this is approximate, doors may open a little earlier or later but not by much. 

Friday registration/doors open about noon and session ends about 4:15 pm. 

Saturday registration/doors open about 9 am with last session ending about 5 pm. 

I hope that helps.  Look for a finalized schedule beginning of Jan 2018.
