CALL FOR REGISTRATIONS AND PAPERS

This informal, annual meeting is designed to bring together people starting their research on molluscs, to give them the opportunity to present and discuss their work and to compare notes on methods and problems.

Attendance is open to all, but speakers and poster presenters should be research students, post-doctoral researchers, undergraduates starting molluscan projects or dissertations, and amateurs engaged in substantial projects, which have not yet been published. Any topic related to molluscs is acceptable: palaeontological, physiological, behavioural, ecological, systematic, morphological or molecular.

Short talks ( 15 mins ) or posters may be offered. They need not be polished accounts of completed work: descriptions of new methods, work in progress, appeals for assistance with unsolved problems are equally acceptable. Powerpoint presentations are the usual form, but should be discussed in advance (see registration form overleaf).

In addition to talks and posters there will be opportunities to acquire reprints contributed by members of the Society. The forum will end with a wine reception.

There is no registration fee; a limited amount of help with travel costs will be available for presenters who cannot claim them from elsewhere.

Enquiries and registrations to: Dr Georges B. Dussart, Canterbury Christ Church University, Canterbury CT1 1JK (tel: +0227 767700, email: [email protected]) or to Manuel Malaquias, Zoology Department, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 5BD (email: [email protected] ). Non-presenters: please let us know you will be coming so that we may estimate numbers.
