MARE-Marine Environmental Sciences Centre, University of Évora together with International Association
of Meiobenthologists are proud to welcome the 17th International Meiofauna Conference (SeventIMCO). The
SeventIMCO is the major assembly to present and share advances in meiofaunal research and this year-2019 it
became a historical meiofauna conference celebrating 50 years (1969-2019) anniversary.
Previous conferences have been held in Tunis, Tunisia (1969), York, England (1973), Hamburg, Germany
(1977), Columbia, USA (1980), Ghent, Belgium (1983), Tampa, USA (1986), Vienna, Austria (1989),

• Advances in taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography.
• Meiofauna biodiversity patterns and ecosystem interactions (including Freshwater, Estuarine
Coastal and Ocean, Deep sea and Frontiers ecosystems)
• Meiofauna in a changing world: meiofauna response to natural and anthro pogenic pressures.
• Methodologic advances in meiofaunal studies: New tools and analytical and
• Meiofauna and Science communication to Society
We have also organized an initiative: a roundtable meeting. This is a dynamic encounter aimed at connecting
early-career scientists with senior scientists to exchange ideas, collaborate and even identify research priorities
for the next decade of meiofauna sciences.
SeventIMCO addresses various challenges that meiofauna research is facing nowadays providing new frontiers
and innovative advances in meiobenthology science, to support management decisions of the sustainable use
of the oceans, seas and freshwater ecosystems.
