Important info

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to postpone the ISGA Congress, originally planned for May 27-31 2020 in Šibenik, Croatia. Even with the vaccinations, the situation is not improving significantly and prevents us from holding the Congress in 2021.

International Society for the Study of Human Growth and Clinical Auxology (ISGA), with the Institute and Anthropological Research as host, and European Anthropological Association (EAA) came to a mutual decision to hold a joint ISGA & EAA Congress in 2024 in Croatia. We look forward to this event as a great opportunity for the exchange of knowledge and networking!

As the planning for the 2024 Congress proceeds, we will be updating the website to keep you informed, so please check the website and do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
