XXII Encontro Brasileiro de Malacologia (XXII EBRAM)
The Brazilian Society of Malacology (SBMa – Sociedade Brasileira de Malacologia) will hold the XXII Brazilian Malacological Congress at Fortaleza city, Ceará State, northeast Brazil, 4-8 September 2011. The congress will be hosted by the Federal University of Ceará (UFC). The congress will be organized as our last highly successful XXI EBRAM – Congress in Rio de Janeiro (July 2009). Special sessions of contributed papers, oral presentations and poster sessions will be open to all aspects of Malacology, including taxonomy, ecology, biology, evolution, distribution and conservation of terrestrial, marine and freshwater mollusks, fisheries and other topics. Some symposia are also being planned. It will be a great opportunity for all people who study or are interested in mollusks, as the major goal of the XXII Brazilian Malacological Congress is to provide conditions for students and researchers to discuss and exchange their results.

XI International Congress of Medical and Applied Malacology (XI ICMAM)
The Eleventh International Congress on Medical and Applied Malacology (11th ICMAM) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 2012. The 11th ICMAM will be a great opportunity for professional, student and amateur malacologists to get together to discuss their research in formal and informal settings and also to exchange ideas and methodologies. In order to reach these purposes, there will be thematic symposia, open contributed sessions and a poster session. The fundamental aim of this Congress will be to assemble researchers interested in several aspects of the biology of mollusks, including basic biology of mollusks, mollusks as mediators of parasitic diseases of humans and other animals, in the harvesting, culture and propagation of mollusks as food, and in mollusks as pests of agriculture, materials, etc. This Congress is being co-hosted by the International Society for Medical and Applied Malacology (ISMAM) and the Brazilian Malacological Society (SBMa).
