Dear Friends and Colleagues and decapod enthusiasts,

We are happy to invite you to the 7th Symposium on Mesozoic and Cenozoic Decapod Crustaceans which will be held in Ljubljana (Slovenia) from June 17th to June 21st 2019.

Slovenia's capital and largest city Ljubljana was awarded the Green Capital of Europe title for 2016. Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city's heart, free for pedestrians. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party (Lonely Planet).
