Meeting degli Ostracodologisti Italiani

Italian speaking Ostracodologists' Meeting

The first idea of a meeting of the Italian Ostracodologists (MOI) was born among Italian researchers to commemorate the life and work of Giuliano Ruggieri who died in April 2002. With this aim, the 1st MOI was organised in Rimini (12-14 February 2003) “In memory of Giuliano Ruggieri”. There were 32 participants from Italy and Europe and a field trip was organised to Val Marecchia, to sample the Neogene sections studied by Prof. Ruggieri.

After a relatively long pause, the 2nd MOI took place in Rome (20-21 February 2008) with the participation of 18 Italian ostracod workers. The ice was broken and ever since, the GOI (Gruppo degli Ostracodologisti Italiani- Italian Ostracodologists' Group) holds its meetings every year.
