About ICIM-4

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society for Invertebrate Morphology, Moscow State University, The Paleontological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and the local organizing committee we cordially invite you to attend the 4th International Congress on Invertebrate Morphology (ICIM4) to be held 18 – 23 August 2017 in Moscow, Russia.

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.

The 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 Organizing committee is inviting students, young ambitious scientists as well as professors from all over the world to share their ideas and to demonstrate their recent scientific results.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Moscow

Natalia M. Biserova, ISIM President-elect

Elena N. Temereva, Chair of the Local Organizing Committee
