The next International Symposium on Ostracoda will be held in Santa Barabara, California, USAmerica.
During the last business meeting of IRGO in Rome, our dear colleagues Todd Oakley (University of California Santa Barbara) and Gene Hunt (Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.) offered to host the next ISO in 2017. We thank Gene hunt for his invitation. We will keep Washington, D.C. in mind for one of the future ISOs.
55.2% of the voters decided that Santa Barbara has better options to host the ISO 18 in 2017. We are looking forward to travelling to California. May be some of us will take the opportunity to stop over at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. after all.
ISO18 will be the third meeting in the USA after the 4th ISO 1972 Delaware (USA) and 8th ISO 1982 Houston (USA).

17th International Symposium on Ostracoda “Back to the future” University of Roma 3, Rome (Italy) 22nd-26th July, 2013
The International Symposium on Ostracoda (ISO) is a meeting that features research on both living and fossil Ostracoda. It takes place every four years, each time in a different location. The 17th Symposium took place in Rome (Italy) and was hosted by the University of Roma 3. It was also an opportunity to celebrate 50 years from the first ISO meeting, which took place at the Zoological Station in Naples (Italy) in 1963. For this reason, the motto of ISO17th was “Back to the future” further developed in “Evolution of concepts and methods in ostracodology during the last 50 years”.
