1st announcement 1st May 2008

ITALY from JUNE 20th to 26th, 2010.  

We are pleased to announce that the 10th International Polychaete
Conference will be held in Lecce, Apulia, Italy, June 20-26, 2010.  The
Conference will be hosted by the University of Salento (DiSTeBA
Department, Lecce). The venue will be the Grand Hotel TIZIANO, a major
Hotel and Convention Center serving in Lecce.
We anticipate that all of the participants and their families will be
accommodated in the Grand Hotel TIZIANO, meaning that both housing and
the Conference will be in the same building. 

The Grand Hotel TIZIANO has the various exhibit and working halls that
will be the location for our poster and communication sessions, and
those exhibitors who will be at the Conference. The size of one of the
exhibit hall is such that all posters can be exhibited for the entire

Adriana Giangrande, from DiSTeBA Lecce (gianadri from ilenic.unile.it) and
Maria Cristina Gambi from the Stazione Zoologica “Anton Dohrn” of
Naples (gambimc from szn.it) are the Organizers. 
ANTHEUS (antheus from unile.it) will be the Events Coordinator for all the
logistic aspects.

Organizing Committee:
Margherita Licciano, Luigi Musco, Cataldo Pierri, Loredana Stabili,
Roberto Schirosi.

Scientific Committee: 
Carlo Nike Bianchi, Grazia Cantone, Alberto Castelli, Miriam Gherardi,
Luisa Nicoletti, Francesco Paolo Patti, Daniela Prevedelli, Gabriella

The guide-line of the Conference will be: Polychaetes as Biological and
Ecological Models: from taxonomy to applied research.
Development, Genetics and Physiology are included within Biological
issues. All the applied aspects are included within Ecological issues.
Obviously Taxonomy is a basic topic for both. Contributions of all
aspects of polychaete research, spanning from taxonomy to applied
issues, can be accepted for presentation. Priority for oral
presentations will be given to those contributions which address,
through the use of polychaetes, more general scientific questions. Pure
alpha-taxonomy papers (description of new species, genus or family
revisions etc.) will be accepted only as posters. 

We agreed to publish the Proceedings of the Conference in the Journal
Wiley-Blackwell Publishing (I.F. 2007 = 0.936). 
For further information, you can go to the Journal web site
All the papers (oral presentations and posters) will be allowed to be
submitted for publication in the Proceedings after a preliminary
selection based on research general relevance, and after a peer review,
as has been the practice in past Conference Proceedings.  

Other announcements will be posted to the Annelida List this summer. 
Updates will be at the Conference WWW site: http://www.polychaeta.it. 

We send to everyone our best regards and hope each of you already would
plan to come visit us for the Conference in Lecce in 2010, and maybe
profit to stay longer for holidays…

Adriana Giangrande and Maria Cristina Gambi
