What is ISVM?

The International Society of Vertebrate Morphology (ISVM) promotes international collaboration and cooperation in vertebrate morphology and between vertebrate morphology and other biological sciences. To do so, ISVM sponsors the International Congresses of Vertebrate Morphology (ICVMs), an exquisite forum for researchers in vertebrate morphology, engaged in fields as diverse as functional morphology, evo-devo, paleontology, modeling, to name but a few. The Congresses are held typically every three years, and their broad goal is to provide an opportunity for interaction, integration, and interfacing. Through a mixture of symposia, workshops, poster sessions and lightning talks, everyone from senior scholars to students shares ideas in an informal and stimulating environment.
