Frontiers in Crustacean Biology: Asian Perspectives: Part II
The Crustacean Society and Carcinological Society of Japan present;
In light of recent development and internationalization of study of biology of crustaceans in Asia, it is the best time to start establishing Asian network of crustacean biology. In the symposium, people who are intensively studying crustaceans in Asian area or studying crustacean specimens collected from Asian area are invited to give a talk.
Greatly successful !
The symposium was held on 27th May 2019 (Henry Cheng International Conference Centre, The Chinese University of Hong Kong) during The Crustacean Society Mid-year Meeting in Hong Kong (26-30 May 2019).
The meeting was a great success; 200 people from 25 countries attended.
