Great Science at a Beautiful Location
IAFSB conferences promote the dialogue between disciplines that have a common interest in fish skeletal research and comparative skeletal biology. The emphasis of IAFSB is to facilitate discussions, the exchange ideas and concepts. The IAFSB location is ideal for this purpose. A beautiful historic fishing village turned into a hotel where we accommodate about 100 participants. All oral presentations are followed by extended discussions. There are no parallel
sessions. Poster presentations get ample space and time.
