Conference Proceedings


Dear Carabidologists,

Thank you once again for participating at the meeting in Primošten where we enjoyed many interesting presentations on diverse topics. Accordingly, we expect to receive many manuscripts about your interesting studies for the 17th ECM proceedings. All participants who presented oral and/or poster contributions are invited to submit their papers to the proceedings.

As already announced the options for the official 17th ECM publication have changed to Periodicum Biologorum in order to keep as many carabidological papers as possible together in one issue.

Periodicum Biologorum is published by Croatian Society for Natural Sciences established in 1885. It is indexed in ISI Web of Science, publishing all aspects of biology. You can see online back issues here.

If you decide to send your paper to be published in PB, on the issue concerning 17th ECM, please use online editorial system here. Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact the editor of the journal, Dr. Sven Jelaska.


While preparing your manuscripts please follow the instructions for authors and indicate in the cover letter that your MS should be placed within the issue concerning the 17th ECM. Only original work which has not been published before can be considered. After publication each of the students and regular participants will receive one free paper copy of the issue.

I’m sure we will read in 2016 many interesting and high quality papers out of the 17th ECM.


We have decided to extend the deadline for submission of your manuscripts to January 15, 2016.

The pdf of the Book of Abstracts can also be downloaded from our website.

Best wishes,
