The IVX Subfossil Cladocera Workshop will take place at Levico Terme, a small thermal town located at the shore of Lake Levico in the Autonomous Province of Trento (

The Subfossil Cladocera Workshops are informal international meetings of people working with subfossil remains of Cladocera in lake and wetland sediments. Participants discuss methodological, taxonomical, and ecological aspects of subfossil Cladocera research, and present their ongoing work, having microscope sessions and teaching to young scientists.

Following a well-established tradition, the next workshop will be a compact and a low cost event, aimed at attracting the participation of students and young researchers from Europe and outside. Thanks to the co-funding by the International Research School in Applied Ecology (IRSAE,, students from institutions affiliated to the IRSAE consortium will receive full board refunding for three overnight stays (i.e. April, 5th-7th). In late autumn 2015 there will be the possibility to apply for a further (small) funding by the Autonomous Province of Trento, which, in case of success, might further contribute to reduce the participation costs.  

The Workshop will be organized as a resident event with all in-house facilities at Hotel Cristallo ( and the related Granì Aaritz, which is 100 m away from the hotel. The rooms at the Garnì will be is reserved for students’ accommodation, included those from  the IRSAE consortium. Full board will be provided for all participants at Hotel Cristallo.

Full board accommodation, workshop dinner and excursion are on participants’ own expenses. An exception is represented by the IRSAE students, whose accommodation costs and workshop dinner will be completely covered by the workshop organization.
