Event 14th International Echinoderm Conference

International Echinoderm Conferences are held every 3 years in different continents alternating between Europe, America and Australasia. They gather together experts and young researchers working in all fields of echinoderm biology and paleontology from all over the world. Plenary lectures, oral communications as well as posters sessions will allow to present recent discoveries and share opinions in a enthusiast and friendly atmosphere. We wish this conference to fulfill this goal for the spiny world of Echinoderms.
