*14th International Rotifer Symposium*

The 14th International Rotifer Symposium will be held in České Budějovice,
Czech Republic, from August 30th to September 4th, 2015.

All researchers interested in rotifers, as well as researchers working on
topics that relate to rotifer biology should join us. Related topics
include, but are not limited to the following: Acanthocephalans; Aging;
Aquaculture; Anhydrobiosis; Asexuals; Biogeography; Diapause; Dispersal;
Evolution; Population dynamics; etc.

All research topics relating to rotifers will be discussed, including their
