When: October 16-18, 2020
Where: Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA

More details regarding agenda and attractions will be forthcoming. For now, you can expect that...
Since 2005, every two years TONMO.com members and staff get together in a chosen city (usually near an aquarium or research center) for a day or two of intense cephalopod discussion and socializing.
It's open to everyone: students, hobbyists, professional biologists, and land-lubbers like me...
We'll have a couple/few vendor tables at TONMOCON VII, during the social mixers on Friday and Saturday night. Beer, wine, book signings and maybe ceph jewelry... more to come!
