10th Congress of International Society of Hymenopterists

The 10th ISH congress was held in Iaşi, Romania, at the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, the Faculty of Biology.

There were 104 participants – 41 of which were students – from 24 countries!

In total, there were 87 talks and 27 posters (almost half of overall presentations were by students!). Below is a word cloud of words used in titles of talks – unsurprisingly, ‘Hymenoptera’ is a very popular word in the society!
