2021 International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control & 53rd Annual Meeting of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology

VIRTUAL MEETING - The registration is mandatory and will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment.

Since 1967, the Society for Invertebrate Pathology (SIP) has brought together members from diverse scientific backgrounds under the unified discipline of invertebrate pathology. The SIP has 7 Divisions: Bacteria, Diseases of Beneficial Invertebrates (DBI), Fungus, Microbial Control, Microsporidia, Nematode and Virus, which promote scientific knowledge of pathology of invertebrate animals, including pest species and species of commercial interest.

Despite the current pandemics, the Society for Invertebrate Pathology has decided to hold its annual meeting but this should take place on line. It is therefore our pleasure to invite you to attend the 2021 International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control & SIP2021 - the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology to be held virtually from 28th of June to 2nd of July 2021 in Tours, Loire Valley, France with the participation of Le Studium, IRBI, CNRS, University of Tours and the University of Guanajuato (Mexico).

As always, the meeting will offer an exciting scientific program exploring the latest fundamental and applied findings in invertebrate pathology, including microbial control, diseases of beneficial invertebrates, and advances in fundamental research on host-pathogen interactions. Among the scientific highlights, the society's divisions have put together stimulating symposia and the plenary symposium will be on ‘Current challenges for the microbial control of Spodoptera frugiperda’. All symposia will be held live on the zoom platform and pre-recorded contributed talks and posters posted for viewing prior to live chat sessions.  

This conference is organised in partnership with EntomoCentre, a Research Thematic Network, focused on Entomology and funded by the Centre-Val de Loire Region. The network aims to promote studies in entomology in relation to global changes and innovative technologies.
