After Portugal (Aveiro, 2015) and Italy (Trapani, 2017)…
As in all the preceding editions, the colloquium will hosts every aspects of studies upon amphipod crustaceans (systematics, ecology, biogeography, physiology, genetics, ecotoxicology etc.)
Above all, following a long lasting tradition, the International Colloquium on Amphipoda will be an exciting forum for scientific exchanges among researchers, where students find a unique environment to meet and connect with senior researchers.
Three plenary lectures will open each conference day. Invited speakers are:
- Pr ALEX FORD (University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom) ;
- Dr NICOLAS PUILLANDRE (Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, France) ;
- Dr JOSE MANUEL GUERRA GARCIA (University of Sevilla, Spain)
On the sidelines of this conference, a Mini-Workshop around DNA barcoding and BOLD will take place on Friday afternoon. This Mini-Workshop is specifically targeting Amphipodologists who are already using DNA-barcodes and who are interested in using or improving their current use of BOLD.
Last but not least, we are also pleased to announce that the social program will be an immersion into the vineyards of Burgundy, now one of the cultural sites of the UNESCO’s World Heritage List, including a trip along the most famous vineyards of Burgundy, a visit of Beaune, a wine cellar visit with « Grand Crus » tasting and a diner at the « Caves Patriarche ».
Please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question.
We look forward to see you in the 18th ICA!
