The Forensic Anthropology Society of Europe (FASE) is calling for participation in a one-week Basic Course in forensic anthropology, that will be followed by a one-day symposium at the Medical faculty of Aix-Marseille University (France), from the 17th to the 22nd of September 2018.

The course (that will be held from monday the 17th to friday the 21st of September 2018) will gather 60 participants (students, anthropologists, archaeologists and forensic practitioners or legal medicine specialists), and a total of 15 lecturers and members of the laboratory staff.

The course will be divided in two parts. The first “morning” part will be dedicated to oral presentations held by renowned experts in the field, including Prof Pascal Adalian, Prof. Eric Baccino, Prof. Cristina Cattaneo, Prof. Eugénia Cunha, Prof Philippe Lefèvre, Prof. Ann Ross, Prof. Douglas Ubelaker, Dr Zuzana Obertova, Dr Anja Petaros.

The Symposium will be held in the same venue, on saturday the 22nd of September 2018, from 9AM to 18AM. Abstract submission for FASE One-day SYMPOSIUM is open. The form is available here.
