Previous meetings of the Asian Society of Ichthyologists


2019 Meeting:

The 6th Annual Conference of the Asian Society of Ichthyologists was held in Banda Aceh, Aceh Province, Indonesia on 1920 June. It was held in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Fisheries, Aquatic and Environmental Sciences and emphasized the goal of advancing marine, fisheries, and environmental research. This collaboration provided many opportunities to scientists and students in the disciplines of ichthyology, fisheries, aquatic, and environmental sciences to participate, learn about fishes and aquatic environments, and develop collaborations. Over 200 participants attended the conference, which included oral presentations and posters and a fieldtrip on the final day.

The organizer of the conference was Professor Dr. Muchlisin Zainal Abidin, Dean of the Faculty of Marine and Fisheries, Syiah Kuala University, Banda Aceh 23111 Indonesia.

2016 Meeting:

A joint annual meeting of the Asian Society of Ichthyologists (ASI) and the Ichthyological society of Taiwan will be held in Taipei on 18-21 May 2016. The ASI was established in 2014 in Penang, Malaysia. Its objectives are promoting the development and advancement of ichthyological research for Asian ichthyologists and others from the World. The conference forthcoming will be the third annual meeting of the ASI since the society established. The two previous ones and its joint conference (Asian Fish Biodiversity Conference) have been held in Guilin, China and Penang, Malaysia, respectively with great success. In the next conference in Taipei, we will continue to provide a platform for the participants to present their latest findings, and exchange their scientific experiences with other researchers from different countries in the field of ichthyology of the region including taxonomy, phylogenetics, evolution, ecology, behavior, physiology, conservation, fisheries management, and others.

The meeting registration and the submission of oral/poster presentations will start from December 2015. We are planning to organize one or more special symposia for the meeting. You are welcome to propose one.
