Neil Cumberlidge (Biology) was invited to present three talks in four days at the International Symposium on Advances in Freshwater Crab Biology, hosted by the department of biological sciences at the National University of Singapore. His presentations were: "Phylogeny of the Afrotropical freshwater crabs"; "Biogeography of the freshwater crabs"; and "Red list assessments and conservation of the freshwater crabs." This was the first-ever meeting of leading experts in this group, which included specialists from Singapore, the Philippines, China, Japan, South Africa and Brazil.
The following papers were presented at the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport in Seoul, Korea. All were co-authored by NMU faculty (in bold) and students and published in the Proceedings of the XXVI Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports.
