After more than 50 years, starting with its first conference in 1965 in Fredensborg Denmark, the International Symposium on Dental Morphology (ISDM) is and shall remain an independent, interdisciplinary and integrative conference bringing together about 250 world specialists in the research fields of Anthropology and Palaeoanthropology, Palaeontology, Anatomy, Archaeology, Zoology, Biomechanics, Forensics, Dentistry, Molecular Biology to discuss intensively the latest findings and versatile current research perspectives on dental evolution, jaw system adaptations, tooth development, tooth growth, life history, functional morphology, evolutionary dentistry and dental forensics in a broad and integrative unique knowledge and discussion forum during three to four days.
We would like to invite contributions (oral or poster) focusing mainly on the following topics related to the masticatory system and dental anatomy and morphology:
Origin and evolutionary history
Growth and ontogeny

All participants must have an institutional affiliation. As we cannot predict how the Corona measures will be in Frankfurt in August 2022, we ask everyone to be prepared for possible restrictions.
