The IUAES organizes ICAES, the International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, but it has nothing to do with the conference called 'ICAES Singapore 2015' (International Conference on Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences) organized by WASET (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology). We do not assume any responsibility for anything related to the conferences organized by WASET.

The revision of the IUAES Statutes was approved by the votes of National Delegations.
