Event held at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid on Friday 3, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 October 2014. It was a pleasure to attend the conferences of different experts on the Conidae family, from all over the world. I was able to learn and make new friends… Here are some pictures of the event and the museum stock:
