Call for proposals for 9th International IPM Symposium

Are you working on your concurrent session proposal for the 9th International IPM Symposium? Sessions may address any aspect of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) including research, extension, regulatory, policy and IPM in practice. For this event, the committee especially encourages proposals that address our theme, and include IPM user perspectives in agriculture and communities, including growers, facility managers, consultants and others.

The Symposium is your premier global event for professional development, networking with colleagues and leading scientists, and learning the latest research and strategies for effectively managing pests in agriculture, communities, and natural areas, with the least impact on health and environment. The 9th International IPM Symposium will be held March 19–22, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland at Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.

This call is only for multi-speaker sessions, not for individual presentations. If you are interested in participating in a session as a speaker and not the organizer, please contact Michelle Marquart at

The proposals should include the title, a proposed slate of speakers, and a 250-word abstract. Program sessions will be organized in ninety-minute time blocks. In addition to multiple speaker sessions, planners will also welcome proposals for discussion, roundtable, or question-and-answer formats on specific topics.

Visit for topic ideas and more details.

Session proposals must be submitted online by Monday, April 24, 2017 for full consideration.
