‚ÄčASSA2018 Conference



Join us at the serene Kloofzicht Lodge, situated in the Cradle of Human Kind, Muldersdrift, Gauteng for the Annual Conference of the Anatomical Society of Southern Africa 2018. Just an hour's drive from both Pretoria and Johannesburg and a mere 15 min's drive from Lanseria Airport, we hope that you come and spend some quality time with colleagues and friends in Anatomy.

We invite presenters from fields of both human- and animal-based anatomy such as Macroscopic Anatomy, Clinical and applied Anatomy, Biological and Forensic Anthropology, Physical Anthropology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Histology, Developmental biology, Osteology, Comparative Anatomy as well as Anatomical and Medical Education.

The programme will start on Sunday morning, 22 April 2018 with a variety of pre-conference workshops arranged by the Society's interest groups, followed by the main conference which will conclude on Wednesday afternoon, 25 April 2018.

As we look back on a magnificent 50 years of our Society, we will be celebrating all the marvelous minds and founding fathers who have paved the way for Anatomists in Southern Africa. For those who have helped lay that path, come and share those precious and fun-filled memories; and for those who will continue paving this Society's next 50 years, come and share your vision and create new memories so that we can reimagine the future of ASSA and Anatomy together. We look forward to hosting you all!
