Local organising committee is proposing full covering of all expenses for our Ukrainian colleagues willing and being able to participate in the 23rd PPA European meeting in Vilnius as a modest act of solidarity. For the details, please contact Conference Secretariat.

Dear colleagues,

We are excited to address you with this cordial invitation to attend the 23rd European Meeting of Paleopathology Association, which will be held on August 25-29, 2022 in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania. The 2022 European Meeting will take place as hybrid event, which will provide the possibility of in person as well as online participation, aiming to meet the needs of colleagues from Europe as well as participants from the rest of the world. The central theme of the conference will be “Paleopathology and its impact on medicine and society” and it will focus on the importance of both scientific achievements and public outreach. We welcome the abstracts for podium and poster presentations in the following topics:

  • History of paleopathology
  • Bone paleopathology
  • Soft tissue paleopathology
  • Paleoparasitology
  • The paleopathology of disability
  • Advances in analytical methods
  • Ethics in paleopathology
  • Paleopathology and the public  

Abstracts shall be submitted until April 30, 2022 and they will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. We also encourage to submit proposals for symposia and workshops which shall offer an opportunity to present and discuss research on a particular topic (half-day or less). Selected symposia and /or workshops will take place either in the main venue of the meeting or Faculty of Medicine (Vilnius University) if they include an educational component and hands-on teaching opportunity.

We look forward to seeing you in Vilnius in 2022!
