About ICPA 2023

Welcome to the 16th International Congress of Physiological Anthropology, biannual congress of International Association of Physiological Anthropology. International Association of Physiological Anthropology is the union of Anthropology, Human Biology and Physiological Anthropology societies around the world.


The IAPA (former ISPA, International Society of Physiological Anthropology) was first established when the 3rd International Congress of Physiological Anthropology was held in Nara, Japan in 1996. Physiological Anthropology is the scientific discipline which focused on homo sapiens as the subjects existing in modern technological society of today and aspired to the creation of living environments and lifestyle systems based on research which attaches importance to human characteristics evaluated from a viewpoint encompassing the past, present and future.


Our main aims are to research humans in modern society from physiological and cultural standpoints. By doing so, we aim to create a truly healthy and comfortable living environment. In addition, our congress provides a platform for exchanging ideas, information, and knowledge to advance the field of physiological anthropology further.


We invite you to join us at the 16th International Congress of Physiological Anthropology, where you will have the opportunity to engage with experts and researchers worldwide and learn about the latest advancements and trends in our field.
