Present at ESA’s using Virtual Meeting Technology

The Entomological Society of America (ESA), located in the U.S., serves the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and individuals in related disciplines from around the world. ESA is hosting its Annual Meeting November 13-16, 2011 in Reno, Nevada USA. With nearly 3,000 entomologists presenting nearly 2,000 scientific presentations in >70 symposia and >50 other scientific sessions, this will be the largest entomological event in the world this year. If travel funds, visas, or other barriers prevent you from attending the largest research-focused conference on entomology in the world, ESA offers you an exciting technology where you can still present your work and reach thousands of entomologists. ESA’s ‘Virtual Posters’ allow you to submit your presentation online, and during the meeting, interested attendees view your research and discuss it personally with you. It’s simple to do and it’s a great opportunity to be cited, to receive a certificate documenting your achievement, and build your worldwide network. Online translation services are provided. Virtual Posters are only offered to individuals located outside of the United States. To learn more, visit www.entsoc.org/am/cm/submit/virtualposters.htm.

Entomological society’s new website goes live!

The executive of Entomological Society of New Zealand decided at its last meeting to have a complete overhaul of the website. The prime motivation was to create a site  that was easy to maintain and deliver new content to members in a format that was easily digestible. The website is near completion, however we have gone live early so that we can provide new information about the joint conference with the Australian Entomological Society in time for the Australians’ 2010 conference that is being held in Perth this week. Please be patient the website should be fully functioning in a few weeks. At present we are working on the online membership and other registration portals. Access to the societies journals should continue as normal. If you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact the webmaster in the interim period.
