Joint realization of four scientific events in elasmobranch science (sharks and rays), with an international scope, bringing together professionals and students, with the objective of discussing the advances and challenges in the research and conservation of this unique biological group. 

The Sharks International Conference is the first truly international event devoted to elasmobranchs, with its first two editions being held respectively in Cairns, Australia in 2010, and Durban, South Africa in 2014. SBEEL’s (Brazilian Society for Elasmobranch Studies) meetings occurring biannually since 1997, represent the main event for the discussion of research, conservation and management of elasmobranchs in Brazil, with its last edition being held in Penedo, Alagoas. The AES (American Elasmobranch Society), founded in 1983, hosts its meetings annually since 1987, including one edition in Brazil (Manaus, Amazonas 2003), with its last meeting being held in New Orleans, USA. Fundación Squalus, created in 2002, hosts its meetings biannualy (Encuentro Colombiano sobre Condrictios), with its last edition being held in Bogotá, Colombia 2016. The next edition in João Pessoa, PB - Brazil, joined by the Brazilian Society for the Study of Elasmobranchs (SBEEL), the American Elasmobranch Society (AES) and the Squalus Foundation from Colombia, will be even more outstanding.
