The IBA also supports a British-based yearly meeting named in honour of Gilbert Larwood, held during years where there is no IBA Conference. This informal meeting aims to bring bryozoan workers together to stimulate discussion, particularly between students and established researchers.
This series of symposia was instigated by Aaron ODea as a forum particularly for younger (read: poorer) bryozoologists from the British Isles to get together with each other as well as with established researchers.
11th Larwood Symposium, 31 May - 1 June 2012, at Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic
9th Larwood Symposium, 21-23 May 2009 at Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, Norway. Pictures here.

3rd Larwood Symposium, 2000, at the Natural History Museum, London, 2000.
2nd Larwood Symposium, 15th December 1999, at Swansea, UK.
