Participate as a Presenter

The Local Committee would like to invite the Orthopterists and the scientific community working on different aspects related to orthopteran species to participate.

This congress will be organized under the title “Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Management.” The Congress will be organized in collaboration with National and International Plant Protection Agencies, and teaching-research institutions of Mexico.

Plenary lectures, symposia, oral presentations, and poster sessions will be organized for Orthopterists and scientific community to exchange ideas and advances under this overall subject. We encourage proposals of symposia in a wide variety of topics such as: biodiversity & phylogeny, invasive species, taxonomy and molecular systematics, functional genomics, biology & behavior, plant-orthopteran interactions, orthoptera as key indicators, evolution & population dynamics, environmental impact of chemicals and alternative control tactics,  modelling, environmental protection, biological control & new bio-rational insecticides, Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems & Sustainable Management

Symposia are to focus on a common theme with at least three participants from different institutions. Presentation length must be between 15 and 25 minutes with time for questions and at least 10 minutes at the end of the symposium for discussion. A symposium will typically last 2 hours and have a maximum of 7 speakers, but the time and number of speakers could be increased if, at the time the symposium is proposed, more is requested. The symposium organizer should make sure that the speakers submit an abstract during the call for abstracts and fulfill the registration to the congress.
