The Western Society of Malacologists (WSM) will hold its 55th Annual Meeting in Pasadena, California, June 23 - June 26, 2022. The meeting will be held at Pasadena City College.

Researchers, students, and mollusk enthusiasts are all welcome to attend! Share your research, student projects, or other mollusk-related work with other experts in the field. The Annual Meeting is an excellent opportunity for student researchers to present their works in progress.

We hope to see you here! The abstract deadline is June 1, 2022.

We will be holding an auction to raise money for the WSM Student Grant Fund. Please consider bringing items to donate for the auction.


The WSM is planning on an in-person meeting. We will be requiring masks and vaccinations to attend the meeting. We will also be following any local, state, or federal COVID-related health guidelines as they are issued.
