Advances in Crustacean Phylogenetics

I was a little slow on this one, but the 1st annual symposium on Advances in Crustacean Phylogenetics will be held October 10-12 in Rostok, Germany.

We are pleased to announce an international symposium to explore recent advances in crustacean phylogenetics based on morphological and molecular data. The idea is to bring experts from different fields together to discuss

(1) the place of crustaceans within arthropods,
(2) the phylogeny of single sub-taxa and
(3) the contribution of certain character complexes to the phylogeny of Crustacea.

Submission of poster abstracts is in July, 2008. This promises to be a historical meeting. I so wish I could attend but have no funds...
