Résumé

The I BAM follows a long tradition in the organization of scientific events with an international scope in the field of Biological Anthropology. The former Department of Anthropology and now the Department of Life Sciences in the University of Coimbra has, over the years, stood out not only in research but also in teaching Anthropology. To an organizing committee constituted by very young researchers, with deep connections to this institution, it is an honor to be able to count with all its support. The idea of this encounter arises from the urge to be closely involved in the practical applicability of the knowledge intersection, at the specific level of Biological Anthropology. This meeting aims to present the latest research that has been developed in several areas of this field.

Presentation

The I BioAnthropological Meeting: a multidisciplinary approach will take place on the 31st of May and 1st of June, 2013, at the Department of Life Sciences (former anthropology) of the Faculty of  Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra (DCV-FCTUC). This meeting is already supported by the Department itself, as well as by the Research Centre for Anthropology and Health (CIAS) and the Group of Studies in Human Evolution (GEEvH).

The I BAM follows a long tradition in the organization of scientific events with an international scope in the field of Biological Anthropology. The former Department of Anthropology and now the Department of Life Sciences in the University of Coimbra has, over the years, stood out not only in research but also in teaching Anthropology. To an organizing committee constituted by very young researchers, with deep connections to this institution, it is an honor to be able to count with all its support. The idea of this encounter arises from the urge to be closely involved in the practical applicability of the knowledge intersection, at the specific level of Biological Anthropology. This meeting aims to present the latest research that has been developed in several areas of this field  highlighting specific themes, such as:

  • Forensic Anthropology
  • Population Genetics
  • Human Ecology
  • Primatology
  • Human Evolution
  • Anthropology of Past Populations

To fulfill this purpose, we intend to gather researchers of the considered themes, in order to enhance the benefits that can be revealed when  using an approach that combines the individuality of each area in a cohesive scientific knowledge. The I BAM also aims to give students and/or researchers, in a wide range of fields not only in Anthropology, the opportunity to expose their work, either by oral or poster presentations.
