We are happy to inform you that the forthcoming Summer Meeting of The Crustacean Society (TCS), jointly hosted with the Latin American Association of Carcinology (ALCARCINUS), will be celebrated between Sunday 07 to Thursday 11 July 2013 in San José, COSTA RICA, Central America. The event will take place in the Hotel Radisson in San José.

The event is open to any presentation on crustacean research, and we encourage colleagues to present results of their novel and innovating research. Currently, we have started to organize sessions on Biodiversity, Sustainable Aquaculture, Molecular Phylogeny, Ecology, Reproduction & Development, Crustacean Fisheries, Behaviour and Conservation Biology in Crustaceans, Biology and Biodiversity of Peracarida and Biology and Biodiversity of the Branchiopoda. However, other topics are more than welcome, and anybody interested in organizing such sessions should contact the organizers of the event as soon as possible (

Contributions on crustaceans from any region of the world are welcome, and there is no geographical limitation to Latin America. This meeting, however, will have a “Latin American touch”: 1) the conference speakers invited by us will be from Latin America or have a long-standing collaboration with Latin America; and 2) although the preferred conference language will be English, we will open the possibility to present talks in Spanish, as long as the slides are in English.

We are looking forward to welcome you to Costa Rica in July 2013 in order to have interesting sessions with participants from all over the world. And last but not least, Costa Rica with its two coasts is a beautiful place well known for its impressive biodiversity, which offers innumerable options to visit the most diverse places.
