Sirex Symposium
Ithaca, NY
October 14 - 16, 2013


Ann Hajek and Mark Whitmore (Cornell University) and Fred Stephen (University of Arkansas) are hosting the first, ever Sirex Symposium from October 14-16, 2013.

This will be a memorable event, being held at the beautiful Cornell Plantations (the arboretum). We plan to cover many subjects, including (but not limited to):

      • Chemical Ecology
      • Detection
      • General biology
      • Ecology
      • Natural enemies
      • Biological control

Interesting and exciting speakers will make oral presentations and some posters will be available. However, we are also allocating lots of time for discussions with the goal of sharing information about working with this insect.
