Abstract: The conference continues the series of international symposia on the biological control of arthropods held every four years. The first meeting was held at Hawaii – USA during January 2002, followed by the Davos - Switzerland meeting during September 2005, and the latest was at Christchurch – New Zealand, during February 2009. The goal of these symposia is to create a forum where biological control researchers and practitioners can meet and exchange information, to promote discussions of up to date issues affecting biological control, particularly pertaining the use of parasitoids and predators as biological control agents. This includes all approaches to biological control: conservation, augmentation, and importation of natural enemy species for the control of arthropod targets, as well as transversal issues. The aim of the meeting is also to stimulate ideas by presenting new information. Therefore, all presentations should present original data from projects dealing with predators and parasitoids, avoiding overviews, summaries, or well known material. The 4th International Symposium on Biological Control of Arthropods will be organized following this concept. Proposals for ideas for scientific sessions, themes and session organizers will be received and selected by the scientific committee. Presentation selection will be responsibility of the session organizers in collaboration with the scientific committee. Submissions that are not accepted as oral presentations due to time restrictions will still be considered as poster presentations. [Information of the supplier]
