Abstract: Preface MARE-Marine Environmental Sciences Centre, University of Évora together with International Association of Meiobenthologists are proud to welcome the 17th International Meiofauna Conference (SeventIMCO). The SeventIMCO is the major assembly to present and share advances in meiofaunal research and this year-2019 it became a historical meiofauna conference celebrating 50 years (1969-2019) anniversary. Previous conferences have been held in Tunis, Tunisia (1969), York, England (1973), Hamburg, Germany (1977), Columbia, USA (1980), Ghent, Belgium (1983), Tampa, USA (1986), Vienna, Austria (1989), Maryland, USA (1992), Perpignan, France (1995), Plymouth, England (1998), Boston, USA (2001), Ravenna, Italy (2004), Recife, Brazil (2007), Ghent, Belgium (2010), Seoul, South Korea (2013) and Heraklion, Crete, Greece (2016).

This is a dynamic encounter aimed at connecting early-career scientists with senior scientists to exchange ideas, collaborate and even identify research priorities for the next decade of meiofauna sciences. SeventIMCO addresses various challenges that meiofauna research is facing nowadays providing new frontiers and innovative advances in meiobenthology science, to support management decisions of the sustainable use of the oceans, seas and freshwater ecosystems.
