Cabrillo Marine Aquarium


13th International Conference on Copepoda

July 16-21, 2017
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and DoubleTree by Hilton San Pedro
Los Angeles, California USA

Every three years since 1981 the World Association of Copepodologists (WAC) holds an international conference called the International Conference on Copepoda or the “ICOC.” These have become the most important global gatherings for all researchers and students of copepods. Each conference gives participants the chance to meet fellow researchers, talk with students and experts, borrow material, and plan collaborations. Each meeting is unique, teeming with the individuality and culture of the host nation.

The next ICOC will be in 2017 in Los Angeles, CA, USA at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and DoubleTree by Hilton San Pedro - Port of Los Angeles. We are expecting over 100 attendees from all over the world.
