The current meeting will be the fifth edition of the International Colloquium – Biology of the Soricidae.

The first meeting was held at the Powdermill Nature Reserve, USA, in 1990. It was followed 12 years later by the second edition in the same place. For the third meeting, shrew researchers travelled to Syktyvkar, Russia, in 2010. The last meeting took place four years ago in Poznań, Poland.

With the current meeting, shrew researchers will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the International Colloquium – Biology of the Soricidae.
