XIII International Symposium on Littorinid Biology and Evolution (ISOLBE)

From 24 Jul 2023 until 27 Jul 2023 - Vila do Conde, Portugal
XIII International Symposium on Littorinid Biology and Evolution (ISOLBE)

Please visit the dedicated website for ISOLBE - XIII International Symposium on Littorinid Biology and Evolution here:

We are pleased to announce the 13th edition of ISOLBE, the International Symposium on Littorinid Biology and Evolution, hosted by Rui Faria at BIOPOLIS- CIBIO – Research Centre in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, University of Porto, Portugal.
During four days of conference, we will discuss recent scientific findings of evolutionary significance within a highly polymorphic group of organisms with remarkable variation in life history traits.

Future promising avenues of research using littorinids as models to understand evolutionary process driving our understanding of biodiversity, together with state-of-the-art tools to address them will be discussed. Altogether, XIII ISOLBE will contribute to reinforce the recognition of Littorinid species as key models to understand the forces influencing evolution.

The informal and inspiring scientific atmosphere of ISOLBE enables researchers and students of different disciplines but with a common interest in Littorinids to present their work in a series of talks and posters, as well as opportunities for group discussions/brainstorms on participants-selected topics of interest.

The conference will be in a hybrid format with possibility of attending both in situ or remotely. However, to fully benefit from interactions among researchers we recommend a visit to Portugal.
