Patronage of the Ministry of the Environment

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the 16th European Carabidologists Meeting obtained patronage of the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic, see attached: patronage. Tomáš Chalupa, the Minister, expresses in his letter his beliefs that our meeting will significantly contribute to the dissemination of knowledge necessary for sustainability of ecosystems. I believe in that too.

Updated information

Dear colleagues,

in order to increase protection against spam registrations the “captcha code” was added to the registration form. Additionally, deadline for the Early Bird registration and payment was changed from the erronously announced May 31 to the correct date of April 30. Thank you for your understanding.
