About Us

The Auxological Society is a non-profit organisation. It was founded in 1992 and supports projects that deal
-with standardized measuring techniques and statistical treatments for describing human growth and development
-with the study of social, economic and ethnic influences on human growth and development
-with the study of the molecular biological basis of growth and development
-with the medical treatment of growth disorders
-and with ergonomic aspects and prevention.

At present, the Auxological Society counts some 100 members from 25 countries. Members meet once annually for a one day symposium (Soiree) discussing actual topics of child growth and development, general topics in human biology and related fields. Proceedings of these symposia are published.

Members of the Auxological Society may apply for a reduction of publication fees.
