Registration for IPM 2022 open


10th International Symposium on Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

The 10th International Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Symposium will be held February 28-March 3 in Denver, Colorado.

Registration for the event is now open and early bird registration closes on February 4th.

The event takes place in person. The at-a-glance schedule and concurrent sessions schedule have been updated, but more details will be added once confirmed.

A full list of events during the symposium is available on the website.

The Professional Development Workshop entitled “Understanding the Collection and Use of Geospatial Data” has just been scheduled for March 3rd. The cost is $45 per person and participants can register until February 4th.

“There are many tools for collecting, managing, and visualizing spatial data,” the organization said in a press release. “Although we all benefit from these tools, many biologists don’t understand how they work behind the scenes, how they are maintained, or how seemingly simple changes can have unforeseen consequences. This gap can make adoption of these tools feel like a barrier to entry when planning new projects, choosing between existing tools, and sharing data between programs.”

This workshop invites participants to become more familiar with the basic terminology used in the design and operation of these systems to encourage mindful collaboration.

Specifically, the participants in this workshop will learn:

  • Basic concepts of data, databases, websites and apps
  • Basics of geodata
  • How to talk to programmers and other nerds
  • Data collection tools and collection strategies
    • Setup for Success – Think through metadata and data collection
      • Citizen Science vs Expert
      • Local scale vs. landscape scale
      • Privacy and Ownership
  • Basic visualization tools
  • Analysis and advanced visualization tools
