It is our pleasure to announce that the 8th International Conference on Coelenterate Biology (ICCB) will be held in Eilat, Israel, from December 1-5, 2013.
The conference will encompass aspects of the biology of all cnidarian groups and ctenophores, including those occurring in pelagic and benthic environments, shallow to deep sea, and freshwater habitats in all regions. Sessions will be devoted to topics ranging from cellular biology, genomics and development, to life histories and reproduction, physiology, pathology, symbiosis and diseases, evolution, biogeography and taxonomy, ecology, and behavior, as well as environmental impacts including global change, toxicity and medical applications. Current and possible future developments in the field will be explored. Our goal is to advance the knowledge on cnidarians, exchange novel findings among peers and students and establish new collaborations.
We are confident that this conference will prove highly attractive, and that Eilat, the meeting’s locality, with its splendid reefs and renowned sunny weather, will provide a perfect ambience.
We look forward to welcoming you in Eilat, Israel, in December 2013.
