13th International Conference on Copepoda at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, Los Angeles, California
Every three years since 1981 the World Association of Copepodologists (WAC) holds an international
conference called the International Conference on Copepoda or the ICOC.
These have become the most important global gatherings for all researchers and students of copepods.
Each conference gives participants the chance to meet fellow researchers, talk with students and experts,
borrow material and plan collaborations.
Each meeting is unique, teeming with the individuality and culture of the host nation.
The next ICOC will be in 2017 in Los Angeles, CA, USA at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and DoubleTree Hotel in San Pedro. We are expecting 250 attendees from all over the world.
More information is available at the conference website
