For La Rochelle, we are planning a number of different activities, such as the presentation of posters and the organization of workshops. About the latter, I may perhaps be a little indiscreet and tell that Manuel J. Tenorio has agreed to do one on radular teeth extraction and microscopical observation; we are also planning a workshop on juvenile Cones and contacts are being made to invite someone to organize it. Seashell dealers will also be invited – some have already confirmed their presence – for a mini-bourse dedicated entirely to Cones. There will be many chances to acquire outstanding specimens and the most important publications within our field of interest.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I do urge you to consider joining us at La Rochelle. I can assure you that you will not regret it, as we will most certainly spend an extremely pleasurable weekend, in a delightful place, with the possibility of learning a lot from so many knowledgeable researchers and collectors, Cone lovers all of them! Above all, it will be fun!
