13th International Conference on Copepoda

    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 13th ICOC was in 2017 in Los Angeles, CA, USA at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and DoubleTree Hotel in San Pedro. We hosted 160 scientists from 30 different countries. Thank you to our sponsors and the City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks for their support.
