UPDATE: ICUP has been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19.
The International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) will take place from June 29 to July 01 2020 in Barcelona, Spain. Every three years, participants from academia, industry, government and professional pest managers, come from all over the world to meet at the ICUP and share research and ideas.
In this 10th edition that we celebrate in 2020, the Spanish Organizing Committee in charge of the Conference will maintain the classical main topics but introduce several new features related to ICUP’s spirit and aims. In the 10th ICUP Conference the initials of the organization will be relevant each day of the meeting.
The programme combines classical urban pest topics with new ideas and projects with the objective of providing a stimulating scientific and technical forum on urban pest management.
There are just two weeks remaining to submit your ideas for a research paper or poster for the Conference. The organisers are looking for presentations and posters which contribute to understanding in the following topic areas :
- Bed bugs
- Flying insects (flies, wasps)
- Invasive species
- Chemical control
- Non-chemical control
- Crawling insects (cockroaches, ants)
- Medical entomology (ticks, fleas)
- Xylophagous insects (termites, woodboring beetles)
- Complementary technology (GIS, monitoring tools, citizen science)
Please visit the website and submit your ideas. The deadline is Monday 16 September latest.
