7th European Ostracodologists’ Meeting

7th European Ostracodologists’ Meeting!
EOM has been taken place for the first time at Frankfurt/Main in 1989. Now, it has become a very important and traditional convention in this field of science. Although it is called a “European Meeting”, usually people from all over the world join this conference and are highly welcomed.
EOM 7 is open for any contribution dealing with ostracods. Deep time or Recent ostracods, freshwater or marine mussel shrimps, pure taxonomy, (palaeo-)environmental, (palaeo-)biogeographical or biostratigraphical studies, genetical and morphometrical analyses or even new methodical approaches are greatly appreciated.
EOM 7 takes place in Graz, located in south-eastern Austria. Parts of this medieval city are not only a UNESCO World Heritage, but Graz is also well known as a city of universities (founded in 1585), famous museums (Joanneum, founded 1811) and modern arts (cultural capital of Europe in 2003). All together: a stimulating place for our – hopefully – successful meeting! If you are interested, please see the following fact sheets.
