Dear friends and colleagues,

Please forward this announcement to interested colleagues and students.

At the International Congress of Entomology <http://ice2016orlando.org/> in
Orlando, Florida, USA in September 2016, there will be a special
symposium, *Synthesis
in Sternorrhyncha Systematics*.

This message serves as an invitation to submit poster presentations to the

Sternorrhyncha researchers tend to aggregate within our respective taxa
(aphids, psyllids, scales, whiteflies); the main impetus for the symposium
is to cross those taxonomic boundaries and seek synergy between our
respective camps. It also plays nicely into the ICE theme of "Entomology
without Borders", in this case taxonomic ones.

The Sternorrhyncha symposium will feature ten oral “reviews” of the state
of systematics of the four major groups of Sternorrhyncha: biology,
evolution, phylogeny, classification, taxonomy, speciation. Speakers from
four continents will present highly informative talks and will attract a
crowd to the symposium's poster session which highlight the diversity of
current research. Due to the limited number of slots for oral
presentations, the poster session will be a key highlight of the symposium.

*Slots are still open: please consider presenting a poster at the
Sternorrhyncha symposium!*

Send the names and affiliations of the authors, a tentative title, and an
abstract of less than 250 words to Colin: ColinFavret at AphidNet.org. For a
multi-authored poster, indicate the "first presenter", but be aware that
the ICE can only accept one such primary presentation per congress attendee.

Time is limited. Send you submission *before 11 December* in order to
assure a slot.

Please forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested; PIs,
send this to your students and encourage them to participate. Thank you for
your participation in what is sure to be a very informative symposium!

Looking forward to an excellent and fruitful meeting!
