Dr. Marcos Kogan is a professor and director emeritus at Oregon State University’s Integrated Plant Protection Center. In 1976, the last time an International Congress of Entomology was held in the U.S., he was one of the main speakers. In the year 2000 in Brazil, he delivered the ICE Plenary Lecture on “Sustainable Development and Integrated Pest Management.” That year, he also delivered the Founders’ Memorial presentation in honor of Leo Dale Newsom at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America.

Dr. John Hildebrand
In November 2014 in Portland, OR, the Co-Chairs of the 2016 International Congress of Entomology announced the selection of awardees and speakers for the 2016 International Congress of Entomology in Orlando, Florida.
The University of Arizona’s Dr. John G. Hildebrand is the recipient of the 2016 Wigglesworth Memorial Lecture Award.
In addition, Professors Angharad Gatehouse (University of Newcastle), Ring Cardé (University of California, Riverside), and Maureen Coetzee (University of the Witwatersrand) will receive Certificates of Distinction for Outstanding Achievements in 2016.
Finally, ICE 2016 will feature the following eight Plenary Speakers:
Dr. Jules Hoffmann
Dr. Jules A. Hoffmann, winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, will speak at the 2016 International Congress of Entomology (ICE 2016), which will be held September 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Hoffmann is a professor of integrative biology at the Strasbourg University Institute for Advanced Study. He is also emeritus research director of the French National Research Center, and he served as vice-president and president of the French National Academy of Sciences from 2006-2010.
He is one of two Nobel Prize winners, along with Peter Agre (2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry), to agree to speak at ICE 2016, which promises to be the largest gathering of insect scientists in history, with more than 6,000 attendees expected.
Dr. Peter Agre
Dr. Peter Agre, the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, will speak at the 2016 International Congress of Entomology (ICE 2016), which will be held September 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.
Dr. Agre shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering aquaporins, a family of water-channel proteins found throughout nature that underlie numerous physiological processes and clinical disorders. He is deeply involved in multiple global issues, and is the current director of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute, which conducts research in Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Royal Entomological Society, on behalf of the Wigglesworth Fund, is pleased to announce that the period for submitting nominations for the 2016 Wigglesworth Memorial Lecture and Medal Award is now open and will remain open until August 31, 2014.
NOMINATIONS FOR THE WIGGLESWORTH LECTURE ARE NOW CLOSED.
The awardee will give the lecture and receive the award at the 25th International Congress of Entomology in Orlando, Florida, USA, September 25-30, 2016.
The Florida Entomological Society (FES) has announced that it will co-locate its 2016 annual meeting with the XXV International Congress of Entomology (ICE), which will be held in Orlando, FL from September 25-30, 2016.
Like the Olympics, the International Congress of Entomology is held every four years, and it attracts thousands of participants from all over the world. This event promises to be the largest gathering of entomologists in history, as the Florida Entomological Society joins the Entomological Society of Canada (ESC) and the Entomological Society of America (ESA), who will all co-locate their 2016 meetings in Orlando along with the ICE 2016.
The organizers of ICE 2016, the XXV International Congress of Entomology, invite members of the global community of insect scientists to submit ideas for symposia for the 2016 meeting, which will take place September 25-30 in Orlando, Florida.
Each symposium at ICE 2016 will be 2-4 hours in length and will feature 15-minute presentations related to the symposium topic.
Each symposium will be assigned to one of the 30 identified scientific sections, which range from acarology to urban entomology.
The deadline for submissions is March 2, 2015.
