Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

Three years after the success of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Entomology (IECE) I have the great pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd IECE, organized and funded by Insects, a Q1 journal in category “Entomology”. Insects continuously generate huge global issues, e.g., outbreaks, considerable losses in agricultural production, transmission of various diseases, seriously injuring humans and animals, increased resistance to insecticides, difficulties of effective management, enigmatic biology and ecology, gaps in the composition and mutations of genes, disorder of diversity due to natural destructions. Therefore, research is the obligatory path to handle all these current challenges and, simultaneously, improve our perception to foresee the upcoming ones. The 2nd IECE aims to unite entomologists all over the world to communicate their top research outcomes from basic and applied point of view that will be rapidly published in variable ways after peer reviewing process. The meeting includes seven research topics, as follows:

Topic 1 Morphology and Systematics
Topic 2 Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, and Genomics
Topic 3 Behaviour, Biology, and Physiology
Topic 4 Biodiversity, Climate Change, Concertation, Ecology, and Evolution
Topic 5 Pest Management, Pesticide Resistance, and Toxicology
Topic 6 Forest and Urban Entomology
Topic 7 Social Insects, Medical and Veterinary Entomology

The 2nd IECE is organized and sponsored by MDPI, a scholarly open access publisher. Ι look forward to your participations, contributions, and discussions.

Kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Nickolas G. Kavallieratos
Chair of the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Entomology

DETAILS
Bio
Nickolas G. Kavallieratos is an Associate Professor of Agricultural Entomology and Acarology at the Agricultural University of Athens. He has worked at several Universities and Institutes in Europe, USA, Asia, and Africa. He studies morphology, morphometry, systematics, zoogeography, phylogeny, genetics and behavior of the Aphidiinae parasitoids. He has also been working on the biology, ecology, demography, behavior and management of stored-product pests (insects, mites) with the use of biocontrol agents (entomopathogenic fungi, entomopathogenic nematodes, bacteria), chemical insecticides, and novel compounds (essential oils, nanoemulsions, microemulsions, diatomaceous earths/other inert dusts, pyrrole derivatives). Prof. Kavallieratos has published >325 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

Registration


Registration for IECE 2025 will be free of charge! The registration includes attendance at all conference sessions.
