8th Central European Workshop of Myrmecology
it is our pleasure to host the 8th Central European Workshop of Myrmecology in Regensburg. Ants have played a large role in zoological research at the University of Regensburg for almost 20 years, and today the team at the chair of evolutionary biology and zoology at UR is among the largest groups devoted to the study of ants in Central Europe. We are looking forward to three days of fascinating talks and presentations about our most favorite pet animals and are quite optimistic that also the post-congress tour through the surroundings of Regensburg will meet the needs of any myrmecologist.
But when coming to Regensburg you should not forget to take the chance to enjoy the vibrancy of a city with a bi-millennial history, with the largest medieval city center north of the Alps, a picturesque urban landscape and lots of beer gardens.
You are cordially invited to experience the 8th CEWM in Regensburg and we are looking forward to meeting you and enjoying your contribution.
More information about how to register and details of the program will be added to the webpage in early 2019.
