Abstract: The 5th International Symposium on Biological Control of Arthropods will take place in Langkawi, Malaysia, September 11-15, 2017. This conference continues the series of international symposia on the biological control of arthropods held every four years. Dr Roy Van Driesche was the founder of the symposia and held the first meeting in Hawaii in January 2002. The second meeting took place in Davos, Switzerland, in September 2005, the third in Christchurch, New Zealand, in February 2009 and the latest one was held in Pucón, Chile, in March 2013. The upcoming 5th symposium will follow the proven format and framework of the previous four symposia as they have all been very successful and highly appreciated by the participants. The goal of these symposia is to create a forum where biological control researchers and practitioners can meet to exchange information and discuss up-to-date issues relating to biological control. This includes the various approaches to biological control, e.g. conservation, augmentation, and importation of natural enemy species for the control of arthropod targets. It also encompasses various transversal issues, including the uptake of biological control and socio-economic impact. There will also be one or two sessions designed to enhance inter-disciplinary collaboration. [Information of the supplier]
