 PRESS RELEASE

After the disruption and postponement caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers of the International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) are now delighted to announce the dates of their rescheduled 2020 Conference.

Where: Pompeu Fabra University, in Barcelona, Spain
When: 27 to 29 June 2022

The 2022 organising team is chaired by Dr Rubén Bueno from Laboratorios Lokímica based in Alicante, Spain.

Dr Rubén Bueno explains: “The conference we had planned for 2020 was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However now that the future is more positive, our Organising Committee is working hard to prepare for what will be another stimulating, productive and above all, Covid-safe conference.”

As at previous ICUP conferences, the programme will address the science and management of a wide variety of urban pests and vectors, including those of hygiene, structural and medical importance. Pests of rising significance, which have caused researchers to revaluate management practices and the future direction of urban pest control will be addressed.

The impact of regulatory and stewardship challenges will also be included.

In addition to the main conference sessions, there will be break-out sessions and workshops, as well as the ever popular conference dinner. Equally important are the informal networking times when views are freely exchanged between delegates and friendships formed.

This highly popular, non-profit conference is the leading international forum for sharing information and ideas on the impact, biology and control of pests in the urban environment. It is attended by entomologists, pest management professionals, and academic and government scientists from around the world.

Uniquely, this event can boast a band of very loyal delegates, many of whom have attended either all, or virtually all, of the events since its formation in 1993.

Details regarding delegate registration and how to offer a paper for consideration by the Organising Committee will be announced in the near future. These will be on the ICUP 2022 website when it goes live. There will also be a link from the central ICUP website at icup.org.uk where the presentations from all previous conferences can also be found.

This will be the tenth in the series of ICUP conferences. The previous conferences have been held in Cambridge, England (1993), Edinburgh, Scotland (1996) Prague, Czech Republic (1999), Charleston, USA (2002), Singapore (2005) Budapest, Hungary (2008), Ouro Preto, Brazil (2011), Zurich, Switzerland (2014) and Aston, Birmingham, UK in 2017.
