The 2016 Senckenberg Conference in Tbilisi will put early evolutionary stages of the genus Homo, into an evolutionary and environmental perspective, and discuss the role of the Caucasus in early hominin development. 

We will highlight regional aspects of early hominin expansions in Eurasia, and reconsider aspects of Homo erectus evolution and behavior in a broad perception. Over 25 highly reputed Homo erectus specialists have already agreed to participate in the Conference, guaranteeing with their contributions a highly topical and first hand scientific program.

You are invited to discuss your Homo erectus related research within this international circle of colleagues either as oral or as poster presentation. Conference proceedings will be published in Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, a peer-reviewed international journal for the publication of high-quality multidisciplinary original studies and comprehensive reviews in the fields of palaeobiodiversity, palaeoenvironments and palaeobiogeography in Earth's history.
