The sixth conference “Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology” will be held  2022. 

It is time to update our knowledge
It is time to present the new results
It is time to get  together

IAFSB must be a real, unrestricted, conference. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to decide where (which country) and when IAFSB will be possible. There will be a 2022 IAFSB conference, in summer by the latest. We will set date and location ASAP.

IAFSB conferences promote the dialogue between experts from different disciplines that have a common interest in fish skeletal research and comparative skeletal biology. Participants come from disciplines such as Evolution and Development, Developmental Genomics and Proteomics, Paleontology, Biomedical Sciences and Regenerative Medicine, Ichthyology and Systematics, Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics, Aquaculture, Fish Pathology, Fish Nutrition, and others.

The emphasis of IAFSB is to facilitate discussions, to promote the exchange of ideas and concepts during, before and after the sessions. Thus we must organise a normal conference without restrictions. The place of venue must be chosen accordingly. Currently, it is unlikely that it will be possible to organise IAFSB at its the traditional venue place, Tavira, Portugal. IAFSB typically accommodates up to 100 participants.
