About ISGA

ISGA in Vilnius with the EAA!

The International Society for the Study of Human Growth and Clinical Auxology (ISGA) was established to expand our understanding of human growth and development in health and disease. For almost five decades it has been a forum for researchers from around the globe to share and compare studies of human growth in different contexts to gain insight into the forces that shape human growth, problems in human growth and their remedies.

We are delighted that following the necessity to postpone our 2020 congress because of the Coronavirus pandemic we are joining the European Anthropological Association in Vilnius, Lithuania from August 24th to 27th 2022 for a combined meeting. 

ISGA will be co-hosting four sessions on human growth and development.  The First 1000 days (to include fetal and infant growth and nutrition) forms a natural initial focus including the growth and development implications of infant feeding, and exercise in childhood and adolescence.  Nutrition, body composition and obesity and the environmental effects on growth (including secular trends, etc.) are underlined with a strong session on Growth data analysis (including approaches to longitudinal and cross-sectional analysis, modelling, growth charts, etc.)

For anthropologists, human biologists, educators, neonatologists, paediatricians, family practitioners and health workers dealing with all aspects of child and adolescent development this combined meeting of the EAA and ISGA will be a great opportunity to review your current research and future directions.
