Long abstract:

The Anthropological Society of Nippon (ASN) is a scientific organization for physical anthropologists and interested professionals in related disciplines. ASN was founded in 1884 and is one of the earliest established learned societies of Japan. Our mission is to advance anthropological research and to promote the dissemination and exchange of anthropological knowledge. Anthropology is a multidisciplinary science that encompasses prehistory, archeology, ethnology, morphological anthropology, human genetics, human ecology, physiological anthropology, primatology, among other related disciplines. Over the years, with the advance of science, many independent societies have come out of the ASN. Currently, the fields of specialization of ASN members include all those disciplines listed above. This panel is open for the members of ASN to present their papers and scientific ideas. Due to the limitation of time for the panel, acceptable papers should be limited to less than twelve in number and less than 20 minutes in time for oral presentation. However, all the ASN members can communicate with and contribute to each other in this panel.
