Welcome, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to all speleobiologists and anyone interested in subterranean life. The 1st Dinaric Symposium on Subterranean Biology organized by Croatian Biospeleological Society and Ruđer Bošković Institute will be held in Zagreb, Croatia from 23rd to 24th September 2016.

The idea of such a symposium was discussed in numerous occasions among many researchers in Dinarides. Dinarides as a cradle of speleobiology, world hotspot of subterranean biology and a spot of numerous projects and collaborations among researchers from all over the world should have a Symposium where ideas and results can be presented and discussed. As 2016 is the 20th anniversary of foundation of Croatian Biospeleological Society we have decided to mark this occasion by organizing this Symposium. We would be honored if you could participate in the Symposium and present your research.

The meeting itself will be hosted on Ruđer Bošković Institute. A number of events are also being planned, including visiting the exhibition of subterranean biodiversity, a day long excursion and social events. As more information becomes available, we will post it on this website.
