Welcome to the 2018 "Fall Meeting" of the Arthopod Neuroscience Network! It is our great pleasure to host this meeting in Greifswald as a satellite to the Annual Meeting of the German Zoological Society. You will notice that we have slighly modified the format compared to the previous meetings and also compared to the ANN "Spring Meeting". The first day will open with a plenary lecture presented by Wolfgang Steein which will be followed by presentations from the working groups (as usual). The evening will close with the "Retzius Plenary Discussion", and we are delighted to annouce that Kei Ito, Nick Strausfeld and Andy Hejnol have confirmed to participate in this discussion. For the second day, we have invited four distinguished young researchers to present their results.

We look forward to seeing you in September! Best wishes, Steffen & Jakob
