Dear MoFa members and friends of malacology!

The planning of the 2. MoFA meeting was somehow delayed due to covid19. Now we are happy to announce the date of the 2nd MoFA meeting on Thursday, 23. September 2021. The meeting will be online, which means that a participation including presentations will be possible via Zoom. In case the COVID19 situation allows, we will organize a hybrid meeting at the Natural History Museum Vienna. This will be decided in August.

Besides the scientific program on 23. September, we plan a field excursion on 24. September – if weather allows – to the Schneeberg, where we may find Cylindrus obtusus and other gastropods of the alpine zone. We may also visit interesting Clausiliid populations at Puchberg.

We hope to attract scientists at all stages of their scientific career to promote their networking. Contributions from all fields of malacology are welcome!

As with our first meeting, we announce that the MoFA Junior Award will be awarded for the participants in early career stage: For MSc as well as PhD studies two awards each will be given (each 300 € / 200 € for talk / short presentation).

Please spread this information among colleagues.
Conference language is English.
Please register and submit your contributions soon to allow proper planning; at the latest 31. July 2021.
We are looking forward to meeting you in September!
