The National Museum of Natural History Luxembourg and University of Trier will kindly host this special international meeting uniting two leading conferences in European Herpetology. The SEH European Congress of Herpetology is held every two years in different European countries since 1979. Deutscher Herpetologentag is equivalent to the annual meeting of the German herpetological society, taking place the 47th time in 2011. This will be the first joint meeting of these two important societies and we expect an extraordinary milestone meeting in European Herpetology.
Most of the congress will take place at the Neumünster Abbey cultural centre next to National Museum of Natural History Luxembourg (MNHN). Key note lectures and symposiums will take place during one day at the University of Trier at the Petrisberg, some 40 kilometres from Luxembourg in the Mosel Valley, and will be turned out well with a herp party (transport will be arranged).
