European PhD Network in Insect Science Annual Meeting, 27th - 29th October 2016

European PhD Network in “Insect Science” Annual Meeting

27th – 29th October 2016

La Colle sur Loup (10 km from Nice) - France


To facilitate interaction between the participants, the meeting will take place entirely at the Belambra « Club des Oliviers » (<>) with rooms and food available on site. Meeting registration fees will  include room, all meals and breaks.

Informal welcome to participants will start Thursday 27th at noon and it will be followed by scientific sessions. The meeting will end on Saturday 29th by lunch time.

The PhD meeting offers PhD students and post-doctoral fellows working in the field of insect science the opportunity to present their research work and interact with a large international audience of junior and senior scientists.
Main conferences (30 and 40 minutes) and short presentations (20mn) will be organized into broad sessions covering the whole range of insect science. Sessions will be defined based on the received abstracts and the attendants but we can tentatively consider the following program based on previous meetings:

  • Systematics and Evolution
  • Insect Interactions
  • Physiology and Development
  • Insect Control and Biotechnology
  • Ecology and Population Biology 
  • Behavioral ecology

Posters are also very welcome. A poster session will be scheduled and each poster will be presented orally (5 min, 1-3 slides).

The number of participants is limited to 80. In case the number of registrations exceed 80, priority will be given on a first come – first served basis.

We hope to see you all in October in la Colle sur Loup,
The organizing committee
