SYMPOSIA are organized either by societies or by a group of scientists on a specific subject of malacology (e.g., evo-devo, bivalves, genomics, conservation). Each symposium includes a keynote-lecture and several lectures and posters and should take place on one day of WCM2022.

WORKSHOPS focus on a specific methodology (e.g. new software for phylogeny, a new morphometric method, new imaging technique, application of 3D-EM, etc.) and offer introduction into the subject. All workshops will take place at Saturday August 6th.

SESSIONS are composed of "free contributions" not organized in symposia. They will consist of 5-6 lectures and will be spread all over the day. We plan (as usual at WCMs) for four parallel sessions every day from 10.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. over 4 days (Wednesday is Day of Excursions).
