The actual venue of the Congress is the Monastery Mekinje. Accommodation is not included in the congress fee, and you are kindly requested to arrange for it by yourselves. The organisers themselves can help by providing a limited number of accommodations. For more, go to the Accommodation info page.


Lectures and posters will deal preferably with the Odonata of 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 alleviate the organisation of the Congress. The deadline for submitting abstracts is by 5th April 2020 the latest. More about abstracts.

In addition to presentations and a full day mid-congress trip during this 4-day Congress, we would like to provide a place for odonatological fair in order to ease access to literature and other products connected with dragonflies and field work. To this end we would also like to ask you to join this initiative by bringing your own publications, items or other relevant material available in your country.
