Österreichische Entomologische Gesellschaft - Logo

On October 19, 2013 Lydia Schlosser and Werner Holzinger were elected as members of the managing committee – as executive secretary and president of the Entomological Society of Austria. In the four years to come, on the one hand we would like to continue with approved traditions like the annual colloquium and the professional discussion. On the other, we strive to enlarge the society´s range of services and try to address new topics, to make the journal Entomologica Austriaca more attractive for the general public.
