Dear bivalve and freshwater friends,

between 26th-28th April 2023 an international conference on the conservation of freshwater bivalves is going to take place in the city of Hof, Germany. The conference focuses on challenges in bivalve conservation related to increasing risk of summer droughts due to climate change and potential target species conflicts. In addition to presentations and discussions, the program will include interesting excursions. The first announcement summarizes the most important administrative information and very soon further details on the program are going to follow. We are looking forward to welcome you in hof next year!
