24th International Conference on Subterranean Biology
#24ICSB
20-24th August 2018, University of Aveiro, Portugal
The 24th International Conference on Subterranean Biology will take place in the University of Aveiro, Portugal, following the previous conference held in the University of Arkansas in 2016, chaired by Dr. David Culver.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, of the 24th International Conference on Subterranean Biology, I would like to welcome the members of the International Society for Subterranean Biology, biologists and those interested in life in the subterranean spaces. This conference is sponsored by the University of Aveiro and will be held in the University campus in Aveiro, Portugal, from 20th to 24th August, 2018.
This will be the first ICSB held in Portugal and we are willing to bring together scientists and students interested in subterranean Biology from around the planet. It will focus on the Biology of subterranean spaces: caves, wells, mss, deep subsurface, anchialine, groundwater, hyporheic, epikarst and other kinds os subterranean ecosystems. The meeting will include a series of conferences and posters for presentation and discussion of theoretical and applied advances in subterranean biology, some workshops and also a field trip to visit some of the emblematic karst caves of Portugal. Pre and post-trips will also be available.
In addition to contributed papers and poster sessions, several special symposia on topics such as evolution and development as well as conservation are being planned. The meeting itself will be hosted on the campus of the University of Aveiro. A number of special events are also being planned, including a day long excursion, several receptions and workshops. More information will soon be available on this website.
