The Molluscan Forum is usually held every year at the Natural History Museum, London. In 2021, as in 2020, the Society organized a virtual edition of the Forum, on 18th November 2021. The Molluscan Forum is designed to be informal and to bring together people starting their research on molluscs, to give them the opportunity to present and discuss their work and to compare notes on methods and problems.
Attendance is open to all, but speakers and poster presenters should be research students, post-doctoral researchers, or undergraduate students starting molluscan projects or dissertations, and amateurs engaged in substantial projects that have not yet been published. Any topic related to molluscs is acceptable: palaeontological, physiological, behavioural, ecological, systematic, morphological or molecular.
There is NO registration fee. Usually, a limited amount of help with travel costs is available for presenters who cannot claim them from elsewhere, in 2020 and 2021 this was not needed.
Most of all, the Forum is relaxed and fun!
Decisions on the format for the next Forum, to be held on 17 November 2022, are pending.
