First ever ICUP webinar to be held on 9th March 2021

The International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) is to hold its first free-of-charge on-line webinar on 9th March 2021.

The webinar will consist of a series of presentations by leading scientists on a range of stimulating urban pest topics, with an opportunity for a questions and answers session with the speakers.

It will take place on 9th March 2021, starting at 15.00 Greenwich Mean Time, and will last for no more than three hours. For those who are unable to attend the live event, recordings of the presentations will also be available for viewing later. Full details of the programme and the registration process will be posted and regularly updated on the ICUP website here.

Until 2020, the ICUP events consisted of a conventional conference, held every three years. However, with the global Covid-19 pandemic, such conferences are not currently possible, and the tenth conference which was due to be held in Barcelona, Spain, had to be postponed.

These are unprecedented times, and the ICUP is adapting to the current challenges in order to continue to serve our community. The Executive Committee looks forward to seeing you once again on 9th March, and in the meantime wishes everyone well in these challenging times.
