In 2012, the Aquarium-Museum of Liège will celebrate its 50th anniversary. This will be a great opportunity to bring together ichthyologists from all specialties. Under the auspices of the European Ichthyological Society, this international meeting will be organized by different laboratories, covering several different disciplines of Fish Biology. The congress will include invited plenary lectures, sessions (oral and poster presentations) and two symposia.

The main topics will be:

- Phylogeny, Systematics
- Evolutionary morphology
- Ecology - Fish conservation
- Ethology
- Genetics
- Virology - Immunology
- Ecophysiology and ecotoxicology

Master and PhD students are strongly encouraged to present their research. Prizes for best oral and poster presentations will be awarded.

Two symposia will be organized during the congress:

  • Adaptive brain morphology and neuroanatomy in fishes (organizer: Dr Fabian Herder, University of Bonn, Germany)
  • Integration of fish fossil data into phylogenetic and comparative studies (organizer: Dr. Francesco Santini, University of California, Los Angeles, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology USA)
