We are excited to host the 2018 Entomological Society of America (ESA), Entomological Society of Canada (ESC) and Entomological Society of British Columbia (ESBC) in the breathtaking city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This offers unique opportunities to share your research, gain exposure, and collaborate across borders and across the Societies. Connect with over 3,000 scientists and researchers from around the globe over the four science-filled days.
Submissions for Section and Member Symposia, Organized Meetings and Workshops are due Thursday, March 1.
- Workshops focused on science communication and professional development are strongly encouraged and all should get attendees out of their seats, using their hands to experience an interactive educational experience. Workshops may include a request for registration fees to cover costs or limit participation for a highly interactive experience.
- Section Symposia should be overarching in theme to serve the interest of one or more an ESA Section. Proposals with an engagement component are highly recommended.
- Member Symposia may cover a wide range of topics and subject matter and may be more narrowly focused.
- Specialty groups that meet regularly each year of the conference may submit as an Organized Meeting.
This is a competitive process. We encourage organizers to be creative, inventive and thoughtful in creating session proposals that are engaging and forward-focused. Failure to provide a comprehensive proposal may result in your submission being left out of the 2018 program.
Program Symposia will be announced by March 1. Section and Member Symposia as well as Workshops and Organized Meetings will be announced by April 16.
