Hello Everyone,

We would like to invite you to participate in a Member Symposium for the 59th Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) to be held in Reno, NV during 13-16 November, 2011. Titled: "Can Entomologists Stop The Threat of Invasive Palm Weevils, Rhynchophorus spp.?"

As you know that ESA has used a variety of systems for such presentations but the one that ESA used the most is confex. The presenter simply sits at his/her computer, runs the PowerPoint presentation and speaks as if they were at the podium. The audience can ask questions and the speaker can hear them and reply in real time. The remote speaker can also watch other presentations and interact with other speakers and is a fully participating member of the audience. Speakers only need a high-speed internet connection although a web cam is very highly recommended.

 As Palm Weevil Investigators are scattered throughout the world and may not have the opportunity to meet very often in spite of the economic significance of this pest. ESA can use the infrastructure of the technology to allow you to meet, free of charge, virtually over the internet and ground line.

 We are wondering if you are willing to speak for 15 minutes (12 + 3 for question). If so, please submit your title and abstract along with contact information to:

redpalmweevil@gmail.com

no later than April 25, 2011 (Time is 4 hours for 15 speakers only).

 

However, each speaker’s presentation would be a regular ESA symposium presentation and each speaker must agree to allow his or her presentation to be recorded for later access via the web.  This is an opportunity to participate in a historically significant entomological event. We would like to see the global entomological community eventually able to meet virtually as necessary and this would be the second real implementation of that capability to combat Invasive Palm Weevils. We hope that you will be able to participate.

 

We hope to hear from you soon.

Aziz Ajlan & Khalid Alhudaib
