The workshop on Taxonomic Methods and Standardization of Meiofauna in the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCFZ) is the third in the series of taxonomic exchange workshops convened by the ISA to address potentially varying taxonomic standards aimed at fostering environmentally sustainable management of deep sea resources. The first workshop on the Taxonomic Standardization of Megafauna was hosted by the Centre for Marine Biodiversity of the Senckenberg Institute in Wilhemshaven, Germany in June 2013. The second workshop on Taxonomic Standardization of Macrofauna was hosted by the Korean Institute of Ocean Sciences and Technology (KIOST) at the East Sea Research Institute in Uljin, Republic of Korea in November 2014. This third workshop focuses on taxonomic methods and standardization of meiofauna in the CCFZ and will be hosted by the University of Ghent, Belgium from 14-17 December 2015.
