The 15th International Congress of Myriapodology will be held from the 18 July – 22 July, 2011 in Brisbane, Australia.
The congress will have a special focus on the myriapod fauna of Asia and the lands and islands of the Pacific basin.

Myriapodologists study multi-legged arthropods (centipedes, millipedes, Symphyla and Pauropoda) and velvet worms (Onychophora). These little-studied groups have been shown to be excellent subjects for studies in evolution, biogeography, developmental genetics and environmental monitoring.
