9th International Symposium on Testate Amoebae – a view from Twitter

The 9th International Symposium on Testate Amoebae Focused Meeting took place at Riddel Hall, Belfast, UK, between 10–14 September. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting. 

Andrew Macumber from the organising committee wished the delegates welcome on Twitter.

The team at Riddel Hall shared some photos of the venue.

Organiser Helen Roe opened the first day of sessions.

The second day included an outreach event at the Ulster Museum.

The third day included sessions on ecology and bioindication, diversity and functioning of testate amoebae and allied microbial groups, and phylogeny and biogeography.

The end of the scientific sessions was marked by an evening of traditional Irish music and dancing with the Alastair Scott Ceilidh Band.

An optional field trip took place on the Friday, where delegates visited bog sites in the Bann Valley, the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills Distillery.

We were happy to receive positive feedback from delegates after the meeting.

Congratulations to Dominika Łuców who won the poster prize!

Thank you to the organisers and all the delegates who helped make the meeting a success.

We hope you enjoyed the day and hope to see you at another Society event soon.
