Tribute to Professor Georges Larrouy
Limit date to register: May 15th 2016

Taking place in Toulouse, from 7 to 9 of June, the GALF (Goupement des Anthropologistes de Langue Française) congress gathers every two years bioanthropologists of French-speaking countries and other colleagues interested in themes related to human biology. It characterizes itself by featuring the cultural background in the study of human populations. The result is an approach that gathers biological anthropology, human and social sciences and also prehistory, archeology, social and cultural anthropology, demography and history.
In 2016, the congress will discuss current issues relevant to the study of human diversity in the areas of: (i) the history of human occupation through paleoanthropology, prehistory, funerary practices, biomarkers, genomics and paleogenomics; (ii) the contemporary and past human identification; (iii) the co-evolution of man with infectious and parasitic agents throughout history; (iv) the sessions will be devoted to various aspects of human diversity.
The colleagues will put into perspective the most recent works in the field of bioanthropology with those from when Professor Georges Larrouy was starting is carreer. Professor Larruoy was former President of the University Paul Sabatier, former president of Sciences Academy of Toulouse, former director of the Hemotypology’s Center of CNRS, and also active member of GALF, who died in 2015.
