Dr. Grayson C. Brown, President of the Entomological Society of America (ESA), has just announced that ESA will host ICE 2016, the XXV International Congress of Entomology, September 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.
ICE 2016 (http://www.ice2016orlando.org) is expected to be the largest gathering of scientists and experts in the history of the entomological sciences, with an expected attendance of over 6,000 delegates. The Congress will be co-located with ESA's 64th Annual Meeting, along with other scientific society meetings. The latest global research on insect science will be presented under the theme "Entomology without Borders."
"ICE 2016 will provide a dynamic forum for the exchange of the latest science, research, and innovations among entomologists all around the world," Dr. Brown said. "Research shared will cover every aspect of the discipline and will bring thousands of experts together from every corner of the globe, many in person in Orlando and others remotely through the latest technologies. Students and early career scientists will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their research in front of a global audience, to compete in global competitions, and will make important connections to last a lifetime. This event, supported by other international initiatives ESA has in the works, will help us significantly broaden the awareness of the science and Society around the world, help us build more collaborative partnerships, and aid us in providing access for our members and others around the globe to the latest research and science."
The first International Congress of Entomology was held in Brussels, Belgium in 1910. Over the past 102 years, Congresses have been held every four years throughout the world, with interruptions occurring only during World Wars I and II. The last Congress hosted in the United States was in 1976 in W
