Brief History of IPW:

The International Pectinid Workshop has been a biennial event on the calendar of marine researchers from all over the world since 1976. The IPW is attended by scientists, students and industry members from across the globe interested in pectinids. It remains a traditional conference with a single main hall and no parallel sessions. The main aim of the Workshop is to bring together researchers, industry professionals and students for networking and the dissemination of research and best practices. It has always been an important gathering for early stage researchers to communicate their work and meet established researchers from across the globe. With a relaxed social atmosphere, the workshop gives attendees the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. The themes of the conference reflects the main areas in which pectinid research is developing at present.
