The annual meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Malacologists (MAM), unarguably the best mollusk meeting on the east coast, will take place this Saturday, 19 March 2011 at the Delaware Museum of Natural History in Wilmington, Delaware.
From the announcement:
This one-day gathering is designed to facilitate contact among professional, amateur, and student malacologists who are interested in any aspect of molluscan biology. There are no dues, officers, abstracts, or publications. Meeting and parking are free of charge. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss data, compare notes on methods and problems, and catch up with colleagues and friends.
