Winter Meeting 2017

The Winter meeting 2017 will be held at the University of York on the 18th & 19th December.

A dedicated web site for the meeting is currently being prepared, but in the meantime, the organizers (Elizabeth Duncan and Elva Robinson) are asking for suggestions for workshops that can form part of the meeting (something that was tried successfully at the last two-day meeting in Bristol). Please send any ideas to one or both of them as soon as possible.

They have also set up a short survey to help organize the meeting, which can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MZ6J9M2 
Note that completing this survey is not a firm commitment to attend (or not), but rather will just give an indication of the numbers that might be expected for booking and organisational purposes.

IV Symposium of Termitology

Viçosa, Brazil

The fourth in a series of symposia on Termitology held at the Federalk University of Viçosa, which started as a national meeting intended to bring together the steadily growing community of termitologists in Brazil. After the success of the first meeting, the symposium turned international, attracting delegates from South America as a whole. The audience reaches about 150 people, including researchers, post-graduate and undergraduate students, mostly focused on fundamental science. A minor proportion of people interested on applied research is also expected to attend. Keynote speakers from the three previous meetings have included Judith Korb, Yves Roisin, Michael Engel, David Bignell and Ed Vargo, in addition to the "natives" Reginaldo Constantino, Eliane Cancello, Ana Maria Costa-Leonardo and Og DeSouza.
