Kraków (Cracow), the old capital of Poland, is a city founded in the 10th century, which features a great number of tourist attractions. The city can be conveniently reached from Warsaw by car using the A-4 motorway or by express train connections. There is also a large international airport at Balice. The proceedings of the Meeting will be conducted in auditoria of the Pedagogical University, and the participants will stay in reasonably-priced rooms (30-40€ per double room/day) in dormitories of decent standard.
The Bieszczady Mountains, the site of the field trip is of outstanding interest to naturalists. It is a sparsely populated area situated in southeastern Poland in the borderland area between Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine. Its diversified wildlife includes ungulates – European bison (wisents), red deer, roe deer, and wild boars, whereas predators are represented by bears, wolves and lynxes. On higher summits, specific plant communities of predominantly grassy mountain pastures occur.
At present, activities are underway to set up the Scientific and Organizing Committees of the Meeting, along with the search for potential sponsors. Before the end of this year, an official website of the Meeting will be created, giving all organizational details and registration forms.
