International Congresses of Myriapodology

The first International Congress of Myriapodology was initiated by Jean-Marie Demange and took place in Paris in 1968 at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (France). This presented the first time opportunity for scientists across the world studying Myriapoda to present their results, discuss problems, and to meet each other.  

The International Congress of Myriapodology has since taken place every three years in European and world-wide centers of myriapod science.
