Eastern Branch Meeting Call for Symposia

We are now accepting symposia proposals for the 2019 Eastern Branch ESA Meeting which will be March 9-11, 2019 at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Conference Center in Blacksburg, VA.  We encourage symposia topics that showcase the full breadth of our entomological activities in the eastern U.S.  All symposia ideas are welcome, and do not hesitate to be creative when considering topics!

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Title of proposed symposium
  • Name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address of organizer(s)
  • Brief summary statement of proposed symposium goal(s)
  • List of speakers you plan to include/invite to participate in your symposium

Submit your symposium proposal online by October 29

If you have any questions or would like feedback on your proposal before submission, please contact Program Co-Chairs Anne Nielsen and Art Agnello.

All proposals will be evaluated by the Program Committee and the selected symposia will be announced in early November. The more complete your proposal, the more favorably it will be ranked.  Regrettably, the Branches lack funding to support invited speakers; therefore, symposium organizers are expected to coordinate with invited speakers to arrange payment of the meeting expenses of the invitees, including travel, accommodations, meeting activities, and registration (member or non-member rate, as appropriate).
