The V International Symposium on Tardigrada

The second smallest tardigrade meeting in the history was attended only by 13 researchers from 4 countries from two continents (Europe and North America). During the single session 7 talks were presented.

The conference was unique in the sense that it was the only Symposium in the history that was a part of another, larger meeting - The Eighth International Meiofauna Conference. It was also the only tardigrade Symposium that did not produce its proceedings. It was the second time that a tardigrade meeting was held in the USA.
