9th International IPM Symposium – Session Proposal Deadline Approaching

The deadline for submitting a proposal for a concurrent session is next Monday, April 24. This is your opportunity to develop a proposal for a session on your favorite topic, and to educate, engage and learn from attendees from around the world. For this event, your program committee especially encourages proposals that address our theme, and include IPM user perspectives in agriculture and communities, including growers, facility managers, consultants and others.

The 9th International IPM Symposium will be held March 19-22, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Symposium is your premier global event for professional development, networking with colleagues and leading scientists, and learning the latest research and strategies for effectively managing pests in agriculture, communities, and natural areas, with the least impact on health and environment.

In 2018, we will organize around a very important theme, IPM: Improving Health, Environment and Global Sustainability.

Session proposals must be submitted online by Monday, April 24, 2017 for full consideration and may address any aspect of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) including research, extension, regulatory, policy and IPM in practice. You will find the online submission form here.

This call is only for multi-speaker sessions, not for individual presentations. If you are interested in participating in a session as a speaker and not the organizer, please contact Michelle Marquart.

Please circulate this announcement to your IPM colleagues.

The proposals should include the title, a proposed slate of speakers, and a 250-word abstract. Program sessions will be organized in ninety-minute time blocks. In addition to multiple speaker sessions, planners will also welcome proposals for discussion, roundtable, or question-and-answer formats on specific topics.
