Outline of IPFC9

We invite you to join us in Okinawa, Japan for the 9th Indo-Pacific Fish Conference (IPFC9), which will be held from 24 to 28 June 2013 at the Okinawa Convention Center in Okinawa Prefecture. As in the previous IPFCs, the main themes of the Okinawa Conference include systematics, evolution, zoogeography and phylogeography, biodiversity, ecology, behavior, and conservation. The Organizing Committee is preparing an interesting program including many symposia on a range of topics such as systematics, evolution, phylogeny, ecology, behavior, and conservation. Colleagues who would like to organize symposia are kindly requested to contact the organizing committee of the IPFC9 at your earliest convenience.
