 This issue of Anthropozoologica is one of the volumes of the proceedings of the 11th meeting of the International Council of Archaeozoology (ICAZ), which was held in Paris (France) 23rd-28th August 2010. ICAZ was founded in the early 1970s and ever since has acted as the main international  rganisation for the study of animal remains from archaeological sites. The International conferences of ICAZ are held every four years, with the Paris meeting – the largest ever – following those in Budapest (Hungary, 1971), Groningen (the Netherlands, 1974), Szczecin (Poland, 1978), London (England, 1982), Bordeaux (France, 1986), Washington D.C. (USA, 1990), Constance (Germany, 1994), Victoria (Canada, 1998), Durham (England, 2002) and Mexico City (Mexico, 2006). The next meeting will be held in Argentina in 2014. The Paris conference – attended by some 720 delegates from 56 countries – was organised as one general and thirty thematic sessions, which attracted, in addition to archaeozoologists, scholars from related disciplines such as bone chemistry, genetics, morphometrics, anthropology, archaeobotany and mainstream archaeology. This conference was also marked by the involvement in the international archaeozoological community of increasing numbers of individuals from numerous countries of Latin America and of South and East Asia.
