9th International IPM Symposium’s Call for Session Proposals Now Open

The 9th International IPM Symposium program committee is now welcoming your proposals for symposium sessions.  Symposium sessions may address any aspect of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) including research, extension, regulatory, policy and IPM in practice. For this event, the program committee especially encourages proposals that address the Symposium’s overall theme (“IPM: Improving Health, Environment and Global Sustainability“), and include IPM user perspectives in agriculture and communities, including growers, facility managers, consultants and others.

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.   The 9th International IPM Symposium will be held March 19–22, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland at Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.

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 Elaine Wolff.

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. Session proposals must be submitted online by Monday, April 24, 2017 for full consideration.

Contact Elaine Wolff, Symposium Coordinator to learn more about attending, exhibiting at or contributing to the Symposium. For more information, please visit the IPM Symposium’s program page.
