The third International Entomophagous Insects Conference (IEIC3) will be held in Orford, Québec,
Canada, from June 2-6, 2013. This conference represents a merging of two previous workshops: the
International Entomophagous Insects Workshop (held in North America) and the European Parasitoid
Workshop. The first meeting took place in Minneapolis, USA, in 2009, followed by a second in
Antibes, France, in 2011.
The IEIC is a forum where researchers with an interest in arthropod natural enemies can meet and
exchange up-to-date information about insect predators and parasitoids. This includes topics ranging
from genomic to community structure, as well as applications such as biological control. A number of
invited speakers will present overviews but most of the scientific session will be devoted to submitted
oral presentations and posters.
The meeting will span five days, starting with a reception at the Montréal Insectarium on Sunday,
June 2. Participants will then move to the venue of the conference, the Hotel Cheribourg, a nice
resort nestled at the bottom of the majestic Mount Orford. This hotel is located in the scenic Eastern
Townships, 125 km east of Montréal. Please note that because of the size of the conference rooms, the
meeting will be limited to 150 participants on a first come, first serve basis.
Aside from the scientific program, we hope you will take the time to enjoy your stay in Montréal and
the Eastern Townships, which have a lot to offer in terms of culture and natural surroundings. We
are looking forward to your participation. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the
meetings or for ideas of how to best take advantage of your stay in Québec.
Hoping to see you in June,
The organizing committee
