1999 Annual Meeting

1999 Annual Meeting

December 12-16, 1999

Hyatt Regency Hotel

Atlanta, Georgia


“Back to the Future on Jointed Legs”


From President Oseto’s message: “Yogi Berra once remarked that the future isn’t what it used to be. Perhaps Yogi was right. Our annual meeting theme, “Back to the Future on Jointed Legs”, provides an opportunity for us to look at the future of entomology and to see what it used to be. In 1989 we celebrated the centennial of the Entomological Society of America; in 1999, we celebrate a “millennium” of achievements and the last meeting of the ESA in the 20th century. A perusal of symposia titles, plenary presentations, conferences, ten-minute papers, and poster presentations reveals that organizers and presenters used the meeting theme to develop an exciting program which looks at the past as a perspective for new challenges in the 21st century.”
