#Hymathon2021: A 24 hour marathon of Hymenoptera

In 2021, The International Society of Hymenopterists (ISH) proudly presents:

#Hymathon2021: a 24 hour marathon online symposium dedicated to all aspects of the order Hymenoptera!

24 hours of Hymenoptera? What more could you ask for!?

Following the success of the 2020 online symposia, the ISH #Hymathon2021 will stretch across time zones to allow the participation of as many members as possible.

Beginning 6 May 2021, 19:30 GMT, Hymathon will start with a North, Central and Southern American session (ie, 6 May afternoon local time), leading into an Australasian session (ie, 7 May afternoon local time), and finishing with a European, Middle Eastern and African session (ie, 7 May afternoon local time).

Time zones getting you confused already? Don’t worry: all times will be confirmed closer to the date, along with a full program and Zoom links for the different sessions, keynote presentation and social gatherings. ISH will also be presenting the 2020 Service Award and 2020 Distinguished Research Medal during the symposium, as these were not awarded last year.

Present during #Hymathon2021!

We invite all ISH members to present a talk during #Hymathon2021, and particularly encourage students, early career members and researchers from a diverse range of countries to present. We encourage presentations on all aspects of Hymenoptera: behaviour, biology, systematics, biological control, evolution and more!

Talks are limited to one per presenter, and will be in 15 minute intervals (12 minutes for the presentation with 3 minutes for questions).

To register to either attend the conference and/or your interest in presenting a talk, please complete the registration form above. Please register talks by Thursday, April 22nd (your local time).

Note: You will need to be a financial member, and logged in to the website to register for the symposium.
