We are pleased to announce that this meeting will be held from 4th to
8th September, 2012 at the Faculty of Biology (Room Santiago Ramón y
Cajal), University of Santiago de Compostela. The conference is being
organised jointly by Universidade
de Santiago de Compostela

(CIMA, Xunta de Galicia).
This conference follows a very successful workshop held in La Paz
(Mexico) in November 2006 under the guidance of Maria Concepcion Lora
Vilchis and Elena Palacios Metchenov from CIBNOR, and two more
meetings: Physiomar 08 organized by IUEM (European Institute for Marine
Studies) and Ifremer (French Institute for the Research and
Exploitation of the Sea) in Brest (France) and Physiomar 10 held in
Québec (Canada) and organized by ISMER-UQAR (Institut des Sciences de
la Mer de Rimouski, Université du Québec) and MAPAQ (Agriculture,
Pêcheries et Alimentation de Québec) and DFO (Fisheries and Oceans,

Bioenergetics, Nutrition, Biomolecules and Biomaterials, and Genetics,
Genomics and Proteomics
. The 2012 conference will also
specific sessions on Inmune Response

This conference will serve as a forum for the communication of recent
advances in all aspects of the physiology in molluscs. Researchers,
students, stakeholders and molluscs farmers will have the opportunity
to communicate personally in a friendly environment with leaders in the
field. This meeting aims to provide a vehicle for continuing exchanges,
cooperation, and collaboration in the field of the physiology of marine
molluscs to better understand their adaptation ability in a changing
environment, their ecological significance, and to promote their
Molluscs have a worldwide economic and ecological importance as
evidenced by the more than 125 participants from 25 countries who
usually attend the workshops.
