XXIII International Congress of Entomology
July 6―11, 2008 • Durban, South Africa

   This is a major event in the world of entomology. The Insects in palaeoenvironments Symposium is scheduled during the Congress.

The 9th Symposium on Mesozoic Terrestrial Ecosystems and Biota
June 2006 • Manchester UK

   The 9th Symposium on Mesozoic Terrestrial Ecosystems will take place at the University of Manchester from June 27th to June 29th, 2006. The MTE symposia are international meetings that take place roughly every four years. They were initiated in 1978 (Paris) to provide a forum in which geologists and palaeontologists working on different aspects of Mesozoic continental ecosystems could meet and exchange ideas. Platform sessions include invited plenary lectures on major themes and shorter research talks. Participants are encouraged to focus on broader implications of their work (to palaeoenvironments, palaeobiogeography, etc.) rather than narrower descriptive or phylogenetic studies.

The Second International Meeting on Palaeoarthropodology,
The Second World Congress on Amber and its Inclusions,
South Africa, 7th―11th February 2005

   The International Palaeoentomological Society invites you to participate in this conference which will be held at the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) in Pretoria.

The First International Palaeoentomological Conference, Moscow, Russia,
30th August―4th September 1998

The Conference attracted around 50 delegates from a dozen of countries in Europe, both North and South Americas, and Africa. Over 50 lectures and posters presented covered a wide range of entomological, palaeontological, and geological topics including phylogenetic systematics, biostratigraphy, palaeoecology, plant-insect relationships, and actualistic experiments. The Conference was held in the Paleontological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, where the World's largest team of professional palaeoentomologists curates an internationally recognised and unique collection of fossil insects and arachnids. Proceedings of the Conference have been published and are available from our bookseller, or direct your request to us by e-mail.
