The 4th European Congress on Odonatology (ECOO 2016) will be held in Tyringe, Sweden, on 11-14 July, followed by two Post Congress Field Trips leaving on the 15th.
Lectures and posters will deal preferably with the Odonata from the Western Palearctic, on various subjects. If you have anything you would like to present, please fill in the abstract form as soon as possible in order to make it easier for the organisation of the congress.
The location for the ECOO16 is Tyringe Kurhotell, in the village of Tyringe, just a few minutes’ walk from a train station just an hour or so from several airports. To pave the ground for more collaboration you this time have the opportunity to stay together with everyone else during the whole ECOO, since we have congress, accommodation, dinners and more at the same place.
You can now access a registration form for the ECOO. We have strived to have as low fees as possible, and still have hopes for some additional funding to be able to lower the fees more. The fees in the registration form therefore represent the costs as they are at present. If no additional funding is granted, those are the fees that will apply.
You have to fill in the registration form and send it to us. When we know the final fees we will send you a personal e-mail with everything you need to know to be able to truly register by paying for your attendance on the ECOO2016.
Thanks to sponsors of previous ECOOs, we are able to offer the possibility to some participants to join us at even lower costs. To benefit a grant, a participant must make a presentation.
The grants will primarily be given to those that need it the most, and can cover or partly cover travel expenses or congress fees.
If you want to apply for a grant, you should write to Magnus Billqvist. Describe your expenses and needs, and submit at least one abstract.
Accommodation and breakfast are not included in the congress fee, and you have to arrange for it on your own. There are several options for accommodation. First of all, several different types of hotel rooms and also a cheaper dorm is available at Tyringe Kurhotell, where the ECOO is being held. We have reduced prices there, so check them out first.
There will be one field trips during and two after the ECOO16. The Mid Congress Field Trip is included in the symposium. You can chose between two optional Post Congress Field Trips that starts immediately after the congress on the 15th.
