Dear friends and colleagues,

you are warmly invited to participate in the 22st Annual Meeting of the International Hamster Workgroup hosted by Faculty of Science, Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic, 17. listopadu 12, Olomouc, taking place in November 13-15, 2015. This conference draws attention to biology of the Common hamster whose populations have declined severely over the past decades. For this reason the “International Hamster Workgroup”, which has been working on the conservation and research of the Common hamster since 1994, is becoming increasingly important. Colleagues from all over Europe regularly take part in the annual meetings; demonstrating the urgent need to exchange information and have discussions to save the Common hamster.

Looking forward to seeing you in Olomouc.
