3rd annual meeting of the European Society for the study of Human Evolution (ESHE)

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

20-21 septembre 2013
Vienne (Autriche)

"The meeting will be hosted by the local organizer Professor Gerhard Weber, from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Vienna.

On Thursday 19 September, the eve of the opening of the meeting, a special keynote presentation will be given by Professor Tecumseh Fitch, from the University of Vienna, on the evolution of speech, language and music. The meeting will be held on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 September in the spectacular Großer Festsaal and Kleiner Festsaal at the University of Vienna. Each day will be composed of plenary podium sessions in the morning, specialized workshops in the afternoon and poster sessions in the early evening.
At the 2013 meeting, we shall experiment with one specialized thematic session and invite potential organizers to submit a short project. This session will include up to 6 podium presentations and will be held on Friday or Saturday afternoon. Submissions of topics in the broader field of evolutionary studies, outside of human paleontology and paleolithic archaeology, are especially encouraged this year. The submission should include a 1-2 page presentation of the subject, a list of participants with titles and short abstracts (200 words). Applications should be sent no later than 15 April and will be quickly reviewed so that selected participants can submit their full abstract in due time for the 31 May abstract deadline. Questions relating to the organization of these specialized sessions can be sent to
An open bar will be organized during the first poster session on Friday, and on Saturday evening a General Assembly of the members of the society will take place, followed by a closing party at a traditional Austrian Heuriger. On Sunday 22 September an optional excursion will be offered to some of Austria’s most important archaeological sites, namely Willendorf and Krems Wachtberg, and will include a cruise along the beautiful Wachau section of the Danube river.
