We are pleased to announce that 2017 mid-year meeting of The Crustacean Society (TCS) will be organized by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and University of Barcelona (UB) and will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 19th to 22nd June 2017. The symposium with already some decades of existence will give particular emphasis to the areas historically covered by the TCS meetings (ecology, fisheries, larvae, taxonomy, among many others topics). The meeting will also include the “11th Colloquium Crustacea Decapoda Mediterranea” and the “5th Crustacean Larval Conference”.
The congress will be organized with parallel oral sessions and poster exhibitions, and will include several invited plenary lectures made by world renowned crustacean researchers. Registration fees were kept as low as possible to encourage the participation of early career marine scientists and students. PhD students will have the opportunity to compete for awards for best oral and poster presentations.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
Enrique Macpherson, Chair
