7th ASA Conference 2022 Ninh Binh, Vietnam

The 7th ASA Conference is an important milestone, on the occasion of 10th anniversary of the Asian Society of Arachnology, the International year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development 2022. This is not only a significant scientific event but also a good opportunity to connect arachnologists in Asia and all other continents in the world.

Besides the stimulating scientific program, with its up-to-date topics and recent findings, we provide a multifaceted experience through complementary activities and supplementary side trips.

Among them, the main attraction will be the complemented visit to established in 1962, Cuc Phuong National Park which is the oldest national park in Vietnam. Cuc Phuong National Park is situated in the monsoon tropical climate region. At the height above sea level from 140 m to 648 m, topography, especially the limestone mountains interspersed with hills and valleys running from the northwest-southeast. Due to the terrain, very intense fragmentation created several sub-climate regions and different microclimates. This is the premise of different vegetation formations, making Cuc Phuong biological diversity very diverse, rich and with its own particular character.
