The Ninth International Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Symposium will be held in Baltimore, Maryland USA from March 19-22, 2018

The International IPM 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. In 2018, we will organize around an important theme, IPM: Improving Health, Environment and Global Sustainability.

Plans for 2018 include mini-symposia featuring international experts addressing hot topics including management solutions for newly introduced pests, as well as sessions for agricultural and food company leaders, and increased opportunities for student participation and recognition. Also new in 2018 will be a coordinated opportunity to visit policymakers on Capitol Hill to educate them on IPM needs and benefits for your sector and clientele.

Participants will also enjoy the very best activities of previous symposia including concurrent sessions, posters, awards, exhibits, and plenty of opportunities to meet with cooperators and potential collaborators. Sessions will address IPM across disciplines, internationally, and in the market place, urban settings, greenhouses and more.

Past participants at this premier international IPM event have included researchers, teachers, Extension educators, independent consultants, the agriculture and food community, IPM practitioners, academics, government scientists and administrators, employees of non-governmental organizations, students, and business professionals from the U.S. and more than 30 countries.

More details will be forthcoming on the symposium website: Opportunities for volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors are available.

Join your colleagues in making this the greatest Symposium ever!
