Why Attend IFAA 2019

The International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA), which was established in 1903, is the federated body bringing together Associations of Anatomy and Anatomists from around the world. Following the successful 18th IFAA Congress in Beijing, the 19th IFAA Congress, will take place at the purpose built ExCel Conference Centre in London’s docklands from the 9th to the 11th August 2019, proudly hosted by the Anatomical Society. This international conference is expected to feature more than 1,500 delegates from around the world. The conference will be held across three days, each of which will include 2 plenary speaker sessions, at least eight symposia and a poster session. The conference programme will feature an excellent line up of internationally renowned plenary speakers, in addition to a range of symposia that span the breadth of activities in the anatomical sciences. These will include symposia on human and animal morphology, clinical and developmental anatomy, neuroscience, tissue engineering education and art in anatomy to name but a few. We particularly encourage early-career anatomists to participate in IFAA2019 to present their work, meet their international peers and experience one of the most iconic cities in the world.

We look forward to welcoming you all to London.
