Entomology 2012, the 60th Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA), will feature 105 symposia on insects and related arthropods, November 11-14, 2012 in Knoxville, TN.

The symposia will address important issues such as current problems with honey bees, bed bugs, the brown marmorated stink bug, the Asian citrus psyllid, the hemlock woolly adelgid, GMOs, forensic entomology, climate change, biofuels, crop pollination, RNAi applications, the i5K Initiative, insect resistance management, transgenic organisms, invasive insects, integrated pest managment, new products, biodiversity, insect photography, forest entomology, and many others.

A full list of the meeting symposia is available at http://bit.ly/zZ4oUX.

The theme of Entomology 2012 is "A Global Society for a Global Science." Covering all aspects of entomology, the symposia will provide insight into many of the world's most vexing problems that affect international researchers and the global community.

Approximately 3,000 researchers, professors, students, extension service personnel, and others will meet for four days of science, networking, and fun. This is the most important annual conference anywhere in the world for the science of entomology.

Online registration for Entomology 2012 will open on July 2, 2012. Members of the media who would like to attend should contact Richard Levine at rlevine@entsoc.org.
