Basic information

We invite you to participate in the The 8thCentral European Dipterological Conference, which will convene at Kežmarské Žľaby, High Tatra Mountains, Slovakia, September 28 – 30, 2015.


The triennial meetings of dipterists have been organized since 1969, initially as workshops of Czech and Slovak dipterists. However, over the last decades the meeting went through a significant development and owing to the broader interest from researchers of the surrounding countries, it has become a conference.

Similarly to the previous meetings, the current conference provides a place for scientific communication and collaboration in the broad field of Diptera research: taxonomy,  phylogeny, physiology, zoogeography, ecology, palaeoecology and applied disciplines such as nature conservation, human/ veterinary medicine and criminology. At the same time they have always been a good opportunity to meet not only colleagues but also old friends and good people.
