Dear Friends of Malacology,

EUROMAL triennial series of conferences started in 2000 and since then they have visited 8 different venues all over Europe. The 9th European Congress of Malacological Societies will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from September 6th to 10th 2020.

We are pleased to announce that Arianta 7 has been published:

Haring, E., Sattmann, H., & Patzner, R. A. (Eds.). (2019). Arianta 7. Wien: Verlag des Naturhistorischen Museums Wien. Download

Arianta 7 includes the abstracts from the first MoFA Meeting 2019 in Salzburg, excursion reports and original papers. In this volume, you find also the instructions for authors. We are already looking forward to the next issue of Arianta and we invite all readers to submit their work to our journal (team@molluskenforschung.at).

We are pleased to announce the foundation of the society „Mollusc Research Austria (MoFA)“, which was authorised by public authority in August 2016. MoFA is a society based in Austria aiming to promote activities of Austrian malacologists and encourage the communication with national and international professional working groups and initiatives.

Another task of the society is the enhancement of information exchange and coordination of scientific projects and studies.
