The proceedings were designed to bring together researchers who share a common interest in the quantitative description of the biological form. Participants came from very diverse disciplines such as agricultural genetics, botany, entomology, forensics, human anatomy, paleontology, human evolution, primatology, dentistry, etc. The participants applied various methodological approaches that are being increasingly used to describe aspects of the biological form. These techniques include neural networks, Fourier descriptors, shape mapping, genome-wide association studies (GWAS), Riemann curves, surface mapping, etc. A number of the contributions in the proceedings represent state of the art research that reflects advances in that discipline.
