The XVIIIth (New) International Congress of Zoology
Athens, August 28 - September 2, 2000
After an interruption of several decades, a new world-gathering of zoologists will be held in Athens on the invitation of the Hellenic Society of Zoology. Several other national societies and international bodies are among the sponsors.
Plenary lectures and a series of 20 invited symposia will present the state of art in the different sub-disciplines. They will be accompanied by related uninvited posters and the proceedings will be open to a recorded discussion from the floor.
Three discussion evenings will deal with stringent issues of general interest: zoological education; collections and data bases; and the crisis of taxonomists. As in the past, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) will convene during the Congress and organize a general discussion. The general assembly will draw up a Congress document, discuss the frameworks for the future and choose the venue of the next Congress.
