Entomology 2019

Join us as we host Entomology 2019 in the crossroads of America, St. Louis. Even historic route 66 runs through here! Easy driving, low-cost flights and affordable hotel rooms, everyone will be drawn here in November. And with so many free world-class attractions, you’ll want to come early over the weekend to be sure to see it all!

America’s Center is the site for all of the scientific content for Entomology 2019. Submissions for Section and Member Symposia, Organized Meetings and Workshops are due Friday, March 1.

Workshops focused on science advocacy, innovation, idea leadership, science communication, and leadership 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.

In 2019, you may submit your workshop for consideration as a Program Workshop. Program Workshops should be closely connected to the Program Theme, Advocate Entomology! and will be promoted and highlighted in the same manner as Program Symposia.

  • Section Symposia should be overarching in theme to serve the interests of one or more ESA Sections. 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.

Submit your symposia or workshop topic to be part of this exciting meeting where we are already crafting fun tours and experiences to take place around the city throughout the week!


Federal government employees interested in submitting proposals may request an extension, if needed.  To request and extension, please email Rosina Romano, ESA Director of Meetings, at rromano@entsoc.org.
