Our symposium is organized with the aim of allowing the debate about the uses and progresses in geometric morphometrics by any practitioner of the field. During the meeting the attendants will have the opportunity to present their own work, to enjoy numerous talks and discuss with other researchers. The principal aim of this meeting is to get all researchers interested in this technique together in order to open a window for discussion, help, and hopefully future collaborations.
In addition, an introductory course will be held the days previous to the conference (20‐21 July). The places will be limited and acceptance will be determined by strict pre‐inscription order.
