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.
