7-10 November 2017

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.
