The international conference “Frontiers of Human Biology” was held near Seferihisar, Turkey from September 15 to 18, 2018. The organizers were Prof. Elena Godina, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russian Federation and Prof. Barry Bogin, Loughborough University, United Kingdom. Mr. Oktay Kaynak, an independent researcher, was in charge of local arrangements. Twenty participants were included: seven from Russia, eight from Turkey, three from the United Kingdom, and one each from Portugal and Japan. The first purpose of the conference was to highlight current research on human biological approaches in studies of human evolution, the health of archeological samples of people from the Eurasian region, growth and development of ancient and living people, and human adaptation to ancient and current technologies. The second purpose of the conference was to bridge social and cultural differences between research communities, as well as to support and encourage researchers working in vulnerable political environments.
