Aims &
Topics
SIP 2022 Meeting: International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control, 54th Annual Meeting of the Society of Invertebrate Pathology, 31.07.-04.08.2022, Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa. SIP is the foremost global scientific society, focussed on insect pathogens, including microbial control and biopesticide development. The society meets once a year in a different part of the world and attracts the world's leading scientists in invertebrate pathology and microbial control. This will be an excellent opportunity (and for many a unique opportunity) to hear and to meet with the world's leading scientists in these disciplines. Apart from the scientific sessions, the meeting has a strong social programme, which gives delegates plenty of time to network. This is a fantastic opportunity for scientists and biopesticide developers to explore collaborative relationships with the world leaders in the field.
A full scientific programme is being organised, starting with a plenary session on Monday morning that will be specifically appropriate to this unique meeting. Each division in the society (viruses, fungi, nematodes, bacteria, microbial control, microsporidia, diseases of beneficial invertebrates) will organise a topical symposium, with at least one cross-divisional symposium also on the cards. Furthermore, there will be three to four concurrent sessions, consisting of contributed papers within the various disciplines.
