The ICUP Conference Organising Committee has already received a large number of excellent abstracts offering papers for consideration for presentation at the 9th International Conference on Urban Pests in Birmingham, UK from 9 to 12 July 2017.

The Committee is aware, however, that following the summer holiday break, some authors have yet to submit their abstract. Therefore, the final date for submission of abstracts has been extended to 14 October 2016.

You will find detailed instructions for submitting the abstracts on the ICUP website. Authors will be notified if their abstract is accepted by 31 October 2016.

We are looking forward to receiving submissions of high-quality original scientific research related to urban pests. Abstracts are also welcomed from authors who wish to present more practically-orientated, yet scientific, findings.
