Symposia Selected for the 2010 ESA Annual Meeting

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) has selected 84 symposia for the 2010 Annual Meeting this December in San Diego, California. Topics include bed bugs, honey bees, biological control, integrated pest management (IPM), ecology, evolution, insect behavior, repellents, pest control, genetics, invasive species, pesticide resistance, transgenic crops, forestry, agriculture, and medical entomology.

The meeting will be held at the Town and Country Hotel and Convention Center in San Diego, California, from December 12-15, 2010.

For this four-day period, thousands of entomologists and professionals from related disciplines will gather from around the world to exchange scientific information and ideas, enhance professional knowledge and skills, network with colleagues and re-acquaint with old friends, and conduct the business of the Society.

The Annual Meeting agenda includes symposia, workshops, ten-minute papers, and poster presentations. Typically, more than 2,500 people attend, and between 1,800 and 2,600 presentations are given annually. In addition, students compete in the President’s Prize Competition and in the Linnaean Games, and there is a Career Center where job vacancies and resumes are posted. A commercial exhibition features entomological equipment, supplies, and reference materials, as well as the opportunity to purchase gifts for friends and family. During this time, other groups such the Entomological Foundation and the Entomological Collections Network have their meetings as well. And, of course, there are receptions and social events, including a Student Mixer.
