MPIThe Department of Human Evolution at the Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology is pleased to host a symposium on recent research in Dental Paleoanthropology, May 26-28, 2005. The title of this conference is Dental Perspectives on Human Evolution: State of the Art Research in Dental Anthropology.

Our objective is to bring together researchers who are working on new and innovative approaches to applying dental anthropological research to paleoanthropological questions. We endeavor to represent many areas of the field including metrics and morphology, growth and development, diet, microwear, microstructure, dental evolution, phylogeny and new fossil discoveries. Over 20 distinguished researchers in the field of Dental Anthropology have agreed to take part in the symposium this May (click here for a list of conference participants).
