The concept of area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM), in which the total population of a pest in an area is targeted, is central to the effective application of the sterile insect technique (SIT) and is increasingly being considered for related genetic, biological and other pest suppression technologies. 

The purpose of the conference is to familiarize participants with new developments, trends and challenges related to insect pest management, both in the fields of agriculture and public health, and to foster a broad exchange of information between sanitary and phytosanitary regulatory authorities, operational AW-IPM programme managers, scientists, human, animal and plant protection specialists, pest management experts, public health practitioners, medical personnel and epidemiologists, as well as the private sector.

The structure of the conference will be based on selected plenary lectures, thematic sessions with keynote addresses, contributions in the form of oral presentations and posters, as well as panel discussions. A limited amount of space will be available for commercial vendors’ displays/exhibits during the conference.

The scope of the conference is meant to cover, but is not limited to, the following topical areas:
Operational AW-IPM programmes
Economic impact and regulatory issues
Mosquitoes and human health
Animal health
Climate change, global trade and invasive species
Tools for integrated programmes, geographic information systems and new developments

Accordingly, the target audience for this conference comprises but is not limited to:
Area-wide insect pest management programme managers and professionals
Stakeholders involved in applications of insect pest management
Human, animal and plant protection specialists
Public health practitioners, epidemiologists and medical personnel
Entomologists, geneticists and scientists engaged in basic and applied research related to insect pest management
Policymakers and officials from sanitary and phytosanitary regulatory authorities

All persons wishing to participate in the conference are requested to register online in advance through the conference web page.
