It is our pleasure to announce the “8th International Symposium on Biomolecular Archaeology” which will take place from 18th–21st September 2018 at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Germany.
Jena is a lively city shaped by science. The University, founded in 1558, three Max-Planck institutes, three Leibniz institutes, the Carl Zeiss Jena GmbH and many biotech companies with young and dynamic researchers provide an incredible impetus to the city.
The symposium aims at bringing together scientists from a multitude of disciplines in the field of Biomolecular Archaeology in order to have the opportunity to discuss their latest work on a multi disciplinary basis and to join their forces for applying state-of-the-art biomolecular techniques to archaeological research.
Various sessions will cover divers methodologies such as proteomics, genetics and analysis of other biomolecules or isotopes applied to a range of exciting topics covering for example human migrations and population genetics, diet and nutrition, domestication, adaptation and ecology or microbiomes and pathogens.
We encourage you to submit abstracts of your work and research, and look forward to sharing with you interesting, comprehensive and enjoyable days in Jena!
On behalf of the organizing committee, we would be pleased if you would follow our invitation.
