More information

ICIM 4 is devoted to actual questions and the most important achievements in the field of invertebrate morphology; to a wide range of scientific problems including the synthesis of classical morphology with advances in molecular taxonomy and phylogeny; to evolutionary developmental biology; to investigations on the structure of different groups of invertebrates; to the problem of miniaturization and the evolution of larval forms; and to modern achievements in the field of functional morphology and paleontology. Special attention will be paid to modern approaches and methods of morphological and evolutionary studies.

Congress symposia could be assigned to four major fields

(1) Recent advances in functional morphology;

(2) Special invertebrate morphology;

(3) Evolutionary theories;

(4) Advanced Microscopy and Morphology.

The congress will be hosted by Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), which is a perfect venue for this scientific society to gather, discuss and share ideas. The building of the Biological Department located directly on the MSU campus will open its gates to students, scientists and professors from all over the world. See website: http://www.icim4.com/
