  • 1. Young Entomologists' Challenge

    Icon UhrIn this section, young entomologists (up to 2 years post-doctoral) can additionally present their submitted content contributions (talk or poster) to Sections 2 to 16 in the form of an additional exciting three-minute pitch.

    The title of the pitch does not have to be the same as the original presentation, but should reflect the basic content of the presentation/poster. Please enter the title of the pitch in the registration form together with your content contributions. An "abstract" does not need to be submitted in advance for this format.

    The three best pitch presentations will be awarded a prize by a jury.
