           The 8th World Congress of Herpetology (WCH8)

                  15?21 August 2016, Hangzhou, China

Call for Symposia

The 8th World Congress of Herpetology (WCH8) will be held 16-21 August 2016 in Hangzhou, China. The Organizing Committee is currently inviting proposals for symposia at WCH8. Each symposium will last two hours, with eight 15-min presentations. If you are interested in organizing a symposium, please submit your proposal via email no later than 31 August 2015 to the following addresses: / (Professor Xiang Ji, Nanjing Normal University) / (Dr. Hong Li, Nanjing Normal University)

The proposal should include:

1) The title of the proposed symposium

2) Names of the organizers and their affiliations

3) A brief description of the theme

4) A tentative list of speakers

All proposals will be evaluated by the Scientific Program Committee chaired by Professor Ya-Ping Zhang, and up to 30 will be selected based on scientific merit and the timeliness of the topic. The selected symposium will be announced by 30 September 2015.

For more information about the 2016 congress (WCH8), please visit the website at:

Now colleagues and I have a proposal about a symposium "Biodiversity and Monitoring of Amphibians and Reptiles", will focus on the climate change aspects of Conservation Action and monitoring of amphibians and reptiles, species diversity and taxonomy, museum collections and their function development of specimens, assessment of species in the world or a region, fauna survey and distribution patterns. 

Welcome attend this symposium and present your presentation around it. Many thanks.
