Symposia selected for the 2016 International Congress of Entomology

June 23, 2015

The co-chairs of the 2016 International Congress of Entomology are proud to announce that 287 symposia have been accepted from the global entomological community for ICE 2016, which will take place September 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

For more than 100 years, International Congresses of Entomology have been held once every four years, and ICE 2016 is expected to bring together the largest delegation of scientists and experts in the history of the discipline, with more than 6,000 attendees expected.

In addition to the symposia, two Nobel Prize winners -- Dr. Peter Agre (2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry) and Dr. Jules A. Hoffmann (2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine) -- will be Plenary speakers.

Symposia will include presentations on Acarology, Agricultural and Forest Entomology, Apidology, Sericulture and Social Insects, Arthropod Vectors of Animal and Plant Disease, Biodiversity, Bioeography and Conservation of Arthropods, Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics of Arthropods, Biological Control and Insect Pathology, Ecology and Population Dynamics, Ecology of Pesticides, Insecticide Resistance, Genetically Modified Crops, Entomological Effects of Global Warming in Agriculture and Medical Entomology, Entomophagy, Entomology in Popular Culture, Functional Genomics and Transgenesis, Genetics and Evolutionary Entomology, Insect Biomechanics and Insect-Inspired Robotics, Insect Chemical Ecology, Insect Immunology and Neurobiology, Integrated Pest Management and Sustainable Agriculture, Invasive and Exotic Entomology, Medical and Veterinary Entomology, Insect Learning and Behavior, Morphology, Systematics and Phylogeny, Physiology and Biochemistry, RNAi and Gene Expression Control in Insects, Stored Products Entomology, and Urban Entomology.
