The Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS) is proud to host the 2016 annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Human Biology. This year we look forward to welcoming an interdisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners to discuss the effects of migration on human health, behaviour and well-being.

The aim of this international symposium is to bring together an interdisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners, including not only anthropologists and human biologists, but also researchers with a wide range of expertise and methodological backgrounds, including health, nutrition, demography and disease, to tackle questions around human migration.

Prof Michael Bang Petersen will give the keynote opening lecture on Wednesday 30 November from 16:00-17:00, this event will be open to researchers and the public and followed by a complimentary reception with snacks and drinks.

Plenary speakers include Prof Sarah Salway and Prof Michelle Holdsworth from the University of Sheffield, UK; Dr Charlotte Houldcroft from The University of Cambridge, UK. Additional speakers and the full program will be announced in due course. Watch this space!
