As the cuticle is key to the arthropod's success of colonising the earth's habitats, the group aims to unite scientists that address aspects of the biology of the arthropod cuticle from many different angles, including biochemical pathways of the cuticle formation, physical peculiarities of the cuticle architecture, as well as the various biological functions of stabilisation, locomotion, defence, water balance, insecticide resistance, or colouration and camouflage.

The group aims to provide an informal forum for exchange of information, ideas and techniques relating to all aspects of the arthropod cuticle in regular, at least annual meetings.
