Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal to present at the Ancestral Health Symposium!

AHS is a scientific conference which provides a forum for studying human health from an evolutionary perspective. Founded on principles of interdisciplinary collaboration, our audience and speakers include researchers, clinicians, health enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs.

Proposals for talks and posters should be based in theory and present scientific evidence in support of the ideas put forward.

The submission deadline is March 18, 2018.

Presentation type

Poster Presentations
Posters will be presented on large poster boards on a topic of your choice. Poster presenters will have 1 minute each during opening remarks to describe the content of their poster. Poster sessions will be 90 minutes in length; presenters are asked to remain with their posters to answer questions.

Note: Every day, there is more and more published science relevant to an ancestral health perspective. Poster presentations offer a great opportunity to share this research, get feedback on ideas, and network with others.

30-Minute Presentations, followed by a 10-minute Q&A.

Movement Sessions
Lead attendees in a movement-oriented session structured as you see fit.

Workshops/Working Groups
These will be semi-formal gatherings of individuals centred on various topics, and will likely not be recorded (a decision at the sole discretion of the Society). In an effort to cast the net widely to generate innovative hypotheses, create an environment conducive for serendipity, and promote egalitarianism, participation in Workshops/Working Groups will be open to all attendees, whether scientist, healthcare professional, or layperson.
