Two congresses that may be interesting for those (Neotropical) snail lovers who like to stay updated with scientific news.
The first one is the American Malacological Society meeting in Philadelphia, U.S.A., 16-21 June. During the last days, Philippe Bouchet and Ira Richling will organize a symposium on “Magnitude of Molluscan Diversity, the known and unknown”. For info on the AMS meeting, see http://www.malacological.org/meetings/index.php.
From 25-29 September, the XI ICMAM (International Congress on Medical and Applied Malacology) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
