Welcome to the 2nd ISBSA page!

The symposium has been ended in success. See you in the third ISBSA which will be held in 2013 in the University of Tokyo!

Due to the earthquake/Tsunami in Northern Japan, the organizers have decided to move the Second International Symposium on Biological Shape Analysis to Okinawa, Japan. The symposium will now be held at the Okinawaken Gender Equality Center in Naha-city on September 7-9, 2011. Okinawa is tropical and a favorite location for vacationers from South-East Asia.

If you find the topics listed of interest to you and your colleagues, and you or your colleagues are willing to present a paper, please send the information at the bottom of the flyer to Dr. Pete Lestrel, preferably by email, as soon as possible. Those of you who have already responded can ignore this request as you are already registered as coming to the symposium. You can find the flyer and registration packet at the following link:


The format is provided in the registration packet.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact any of the organizers.

Symposium proceedings of the 2nd ISBSA will be published by World Scientific of Singapore. The proceedings of the 1st ISBSA held June 3-6, 2009 are being published and will be available at the meetings in Okinawa. Please look at the following link for details:


Given the success of the 1st ISBSA, we look forward to an even better symposium in 2011! Further announcements concerning the symposium will be updated on this page.
