We are pleased to invite you to Cork, which is 'European City of
Culture 2005'.
Anyone interested in amphipods is invited to attend the meeting, which
will be hosted by the National University of Ireland, Cork.
It is not intended that papers will be published from the meeting, which
will be an informal forum for exchange of ideas and discussions of
ongoing research.


The scientific programme will consist of presented papers and workshops.
The following workshops are being considered:

d) Catalogue of all new taxa described since Barnard & Karaman, 1991 and
Russian caprellid/hyperiid monographs (amphipod website)
e) Terminology used in amphipod descriptions

The Amphipod website
a) The website, summary of current state
b) Challenges and solutions.
c) The future?

A demonstration of amphipod illustration techniques is also planned.
