Abstract: The meeting will be hosted by the University of Veterinary Medicine(UVM) and by the Hungarian Museum of Natural Sciences in Budapest. The main organisation activity is undertaken by the Hungarian Biological Society. The symposia series on the biology of terrestrial isopods aims to share our up-to-date scientific knowledge on Oniscidea. The first symposia in the series was held in London, UK, in 1983, which was followed by eight others: Urbino, Italy (1986); Poitiers, France (1990); Haifa, Israel (1997); Iraklion, Greece (2001); Aveiro, Portugal (2004); Tunis, Tunisia (2007); Bled, Slovenia (2011) and Poitiers, France (2014). This rich history provides evidence that the scientific community that has chosen “a somewhat extravagant group of organisms to work with” (as defined by H. Schmalfuss at the symposium in Bled) is very active and dynamic. We decided in Poitiers to hold the next meeting in Budapest, Hungary (2017). Diverse topics of presentation and discussion are encouraged, exploring the latest findings on woodlice, slaters, pill bugs, sow-bugs, roly-poly-s, landpissebedden, Asseln, ászka, pincebogár мокрици, γουρουνίτσες, δροσομάμουνα, etc. at all spatio-temporal scales.
