Scientific Symposia

An updated list of Symposia at ICE2022 will be provided as soon as we have verified the current status of all symposia.

General information for symposium organizers
The ICE2022Helsinki congress will run from 17 to 22 July, 2022, and will be arranged in sections representing major fields of entomological interest. Each section will include a number of symposia.

The ICE2022Helsinki congress intends to attract world-leaders as symposium organizers who will be able to identify cutting-edge topics and to assemble the best-available established researchers, and excellent younger researchers, to present their work. Each symposium will have at least two organizers, and one will be designated as being in charge of the symposium. The symposium organizers will decide which contributions are most suited as poster presentations or as talks. The organizers will function as moderators during the oral presentations.

Symposium presentations will be 15 minutes each (including time for questions), allowing for the possibility of one ‘double-presentation’/keynote talk of 30 minutes (i.e. 20 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for questions/discussion). There will be eight presentations per symposium (or seven if a keynote talk is included).

Concerning financial arrangements, the policies used at ICE2016 in Orlando, Florida will be followed: each contributor will have to pay his/her own registration fees. Symposium organizers will be encouraged to raise funding from sponsors, foundations, and institutions for their symposia. The general ICE2022Helsinki congress organizational funding will not be used to support symposium organizers or the invited speakers. Formal acknowledgements of sponsorships (such as visibility at the venue or in the Congress website and publications, for example) by ICE2022Helsinki will be appropriate to the levels of sponsorship received.

Symposium organizers are encouraged to initiate and arrange for publication of the proceedings in suitable journals, in special issues of journals, and/or in books that highlight advances in the topics presented at the congress.
