To Whom It May Concern:

We are pleased to offer the  6th offering of the HYM Course to be held at the CRILAR_CONICET station in Anillaco-La Rioja, Argentina, March 1-9, 2015.
This is the ONLY course that offers a complete coverage of the entire order Hymenoptera, including collecting techniques and curatorial methods. This offering will feature a symposium on the last day focusing on a breadth of research topics covering hymenopteran phylogenetics, biology, ecology, biocontrol, etc. Details are available at: www.hymcourse.org.

Anillaco, at 1450 meters above sea level, is located on the foothills of the Sierra de Velasco (maximum elevation 4,500m). The climate is desert, with annual rainfall of ~180 mm per year, with minimum winter temperatures of -12C and maximum in summer of 38 C. The foothill vegetation development reaches a mountain forest in some places where streams flow down from the mountains. Three meals are served daily along with a coffee break each in the morning and afternoon. Vegetarian options are available. Special diets (halal, vegan, gluten-free, etc.) cannot be accommodated.

NEW Deadline for application is December 19, 2014.
