This International and Interdisciplinary Conference, that is the third to be organized, after Herakleion and Ephesus Conferences, aims to highlight numerous new trends in bioarchaeology research that are made possible by the rapid development of current biomedical science and technology. These innovative approaches will shed new light on the mystery of human skeletal remains within their archaeological and historical contexts. Interesting debates on the use of bioarchaeological data as primary sources for the reconstruction of the past human populations lifestyles, including their health status, and on their contribution to the history of health and disease, are expected during this conference. Researchers and scholars in the fields of medicine, history of medicine, bioarchaeology, medical and molecular genetics, medical imaging, paleopathology, physical anthropology, archaeology, and related disciplines are invited to participate.
