The Asian Ostracod Meetings were established with the aim of improving collaboration between ostracod researchers within Asia, and beyond.

The first meeting was held in Seoul, South Korea in 2014, with the second taking place in Kunming, China in 2016.

The third meeting will take place in Kanazawa, Japan during August 6 to 10, 2018.

All researchers are warmly welcome to participate in these meetings, including people not based in Asia, or working on ostracods in other areas. The meetings provide an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues, expand cooperation between Asia and elsewhere, and forge new friendships.
