Dear All,

Please could you widely circulate this within your respective departments
and to those interested.

The Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies at Aarhus University
(Denmark) warmly invites you to MORPH2017, an annual academic conference
focusing on the archaeological applications of traditional and (primarily)
geometric morphometrics. Following its successes at the University of
Southampton and University College London, the conference returns for its
third installment on 4th-5th May 2017.

We welcome abstracts which discuss and/or use traditional and geometric
morphometric methodologies to investigate aspects of the archaeological
record. We are particularly interested in new studies and applications of
geometric morphometric (2D/3D) methodologies, critical reviews on the
application of geometric morphometric techniques, and the appropriateness
of morphological statistical significance in understanding archaeological
significance. All abstracts should be submitted before 17th March 2017 - a
provisional programme will be outlined shortly after.

Our two keynote speakers for the conference are Dr. Radu Iovita (Assistant
Professor of Anthropology, New York University) and Dr. Philipp Gunz
(Research Fellow, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology).

In addition to a series of talks we will also be hosting two workshops on
geometric morphometrics: one for people who are new to geometric
morphometrics, and one for colleagues wishing to use R packages in their
analyses. A number of other social and conference events (including a data
café and evening dinner) will also take place.

We are also pleased to announce that we will have on-site childcare
facilities for the duration of the MORPH2017 conference, and that this will
be of no extra charge to attendees.

More information about the conference including registration can be found

Thank you.
