History of the society
The Slovak Limnological Society was established in 1994, when the former Czechoslovak Limnological Society splitted into two national societies, the Slovak and the Czech ones. The Czechoslovak Limnological Society was constituted in 1966 and it continued in activities of the Hydrobiological committee associated with the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. It was mainly dealing with co-ordination and development of co-operation between specialists and institutions of fundamental and applied research in the field of water and water management as well as organization of conferences and workshops.
Till now, close cooperation has continued between Slovak and Czech Limnological Societies, supported by regular conferences, organized in three-year periods. The venue of these meetings is altered among Czech, Moravia and Slovakia.
