Tradition and Innovation:
Integrative Approaches to Crustacean Studies

The Organizing Committee of the joint CBC.TCS.SANTOS (XI Brazilian Crustacean Conference and The Crustacean Society Summer Meeting) informs the Brazilian Society of Carcinology (SBC) and The Crustacean Society (TCS) members that we are currently receiving proposals for symposia and workshops for this meeting, until October 15, 2019.

The proposals must be in agreement with the general theme of the meeting, which is “Tradition and Innovation: Integrative Approaches to Crustacean Studies”. The CBC.TCS.SANTOS meeting will take place in Santos City, São Paulo State, Brazil, from September 27 to 30th, 2020.

Symposia: The symposia will occur between September 28 and 30, 2020. Each symposium may have a minimum of 2 hours and 4 speakers, including discussion time. Depending on the theme and audience, the symposia can use 4 hours a day (morning: 2 hours + afternoon: 2 hours). 

Workshops: The workshops will take place one day after the congress period, on October 1st, 2020. The workshops must have a minimum of 4 hours and a maximum of 8 hours long, and should be coordinated by only one person.

We have 7 main topics that can be explored via symposia and workshops:

1) Taxonomy and phylogeny
2) Ecology and Biodiversity
3) Genetics and Conservation
4) Reproduction and Development
5) Aquaculture and fisheries
6) Physiology and Toxicology
7) Environmental Education

Submission of proposals to Symposia and Workshop should be sent to:

It is important to inform that the Organizing Committee is currently seeking for financial resources in the expectation of being able to reimburse some speakers for their expenses. However, we cannot promise funding, and we will prioritize symposia and workshops that require no financial support or modest support for their execution.

Your participation is very important for the success of this event!
