Dear Colleagues,
it is a great pleasure to announce that the 5th EurBee congress will be held at the Martin-Luther-University 
Halle-Wittenberg in Halle an der Saale between 3th and 7th of September 2012. 

The congress is the major European platform for bringing together international scientists with an 
interest in all aspects of bee biology. The biennial conference  serves as a communication platform for top EU research 
in Apidology and hosts the pan European research networks BEEDOC, STEP and COLOSS.

The conference comprises plenary lectures and symposia (talks and posters) on diverse aspects of the biology of bees,
honeybee management and honeybee products.  Each morning and each afternoon will commence with a plenary lecture, 
followed by two parallel symposia.

In addition to the papers presented, there will be awards for the best student talk and the best student poster.

On behalf of the EurBee Board and the Martin-Luther-University, I would like to invite you to join us at the 
EurBee5 conference to share your knowledge and experience and to further develop the European Research Area in Apidology.
