North American Dipterists Society


Dipterists are invited to submit symposium ideas. Please see the Symposium Guidelines to learn how to submit a symposium suggestion.

Following is the current list of symposium titles along with their organizers. There is still room for more symposia suggestions, so please feel free to do so!

If you are interested in presenting a talk in one of these symposia, please contact Martin Hauser (mhauser@dipterists.org) with details. We will have slots for talks outside of these symposia as well - covering any dipterological topic - so please contact Martin with your talk suggestions.

Please visit the abstract submission page for guidelines and instructions. As the scientific program grows, the symposia, conveners and other details will be kept up to date here.
