International Symposium: Frontiers in Crustacean Biology: Asian Perspectives
(Successfully completed! 6-9, Oct 2017)
In light of recent development and internationalization of study of biology of crustaceans in countries in Asian region, it is the best time to start establishing Asian network of crustacean biology. Caricinological Society of Japan will host the network. As the first step to turn the idea into a startup, a symposium of this subject is organized. In this symposium, people who are intensively studying crustacean biology in Asian area are invited to present review of their study.
