Homo erectus 100+25

20-24 September 2016

In 1991, 100 years after the 1891 discovery of Pithecanthropus erectus in Java, the International Senckenberg Conference was held in Frankfurt to review 100 years of Homo erectus research.

In 2016, 25 years later, the Homo erectus enigma is still one of the most intriguing issues in hominin evolutionary research.

It is evident, that after 100+25 years of Homo erectus research, there is now sufficient new evidence to revisit the Homo erectus enigma. This conference on the one hand aims to comprehend state of the art knowledge about Homo erectus and on the other, to develop new approaches and questions for future international and interdisciplinary research.
