(Department for Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Ljubljana,

Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES)
that will be held from May 4th to 9th 2016 in Hotel Palace Dubrovnik,
As the ethnological and anthropological
sciences encompass an abundance of different research fields and
perspectives, particularly as they develop in diverse parts of
the world, we accepted 171 diverse and interesting panels that
are divided into theese topics of the Inter-Congress:
- World anthropologies: peripheries strike back
- Privatization of knowledge, technologies, and nature
- Engagement and practice: publicizing and using anthropology/Bringing
anthropology to the people: how can science contribute to everyday
- Varieties reconsidered: biocultural challenges for anthropology
- Anthropological responsibilities
- Managing cultural and linguistic diversity and social inequality
- Human genetics costs and benefits
- Human evolution: past, present and future
- Anthropological knowledge and environmental challenges
- Improving health, well-being and quality of life
You can submit your paper abstract in specific panel! All panels
can be vieved on panel list.
We would like to inform you that Call for papers and Early Bird

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the death of
Professor Emeritus Toivo Jürimäe (09.05.1949-05.10.2015).
The University of Tartu mourns Toivo
Jürimäe - renowned researcher in the fields of sport
pedagogy, exercise physiology and kinanthropometry. Toivo Jürimäe
graduated from the University of Tartu in 1973 as teacher of physical
education and returned to his alma mater as teaching staff member
in 1977. He acquired the PhD degree in biological sciences with
the thesis on physical abilities of young endurance athletes and
was Professor of sport pedagogy from 1992 until being elected
Professor emeritus in 2012. The research interests of Toivo Jürimäe
were focused on studying the relationships between anthropometrical
parametres of the organism, health and physical abilities in children,
young athletes and the elderly persons.
In addition to the authorship of more than 200 publications and
having supervised numerous doctoral students, the contribution
of Toivo Jürimäe to research was expressed in launching
and developing international cooperation projects, be it summer
schools for doctoral students, licence-acquiring courses for conducting
standardized measurements under the auspices of the International
Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry, or successful
lobbying resulting in three annual conferences of international
research societies taking place in Estonia - 7th International
Conference of Sport Kinetics, 23rd ICPAFR International Sport
Science Symposium and Children and Exercise: the 24th Pediatric
Work Physiology Meeting.
Toivo Jürimäe was member of the European Anthropological
Association and had long-term research contacts with the Centre
of Physical Anthropology within the Faculty of Medicine at the
University of Tartu.
The work of Toivo Jürimäe lives on in his research writings
and in the students that he has supervised and who are teaching
