NCUE has taken place every other year since 1986 to open the channels of communication and information between scientists in industry, academia and the government; and foster interest and research in the general area of urban and structural entomology. IPAC began co-locating with NCUE in 2016. The event initially scheduled for 2020 was held virtually in 2021 because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The conference provides an opportunity for those who are focused on urban entomology to learn from each other’s research, share ideas, ask questions, network and develop partnerships.

Registration includes the awards luncheon, welcome reception, as well as refreshments during breaks.

The awards deadlines currently are open and include:

  • Student Travel Award: This year, 10 awards will be issued to students to help defray costs associated with attending the conference. Each award recipient will receive $300 at the conference, as well as free registration. Each award recipient is required to present a paper at the conference. The application deadline is March 1, 2022.
  • Student Scholarship: A $1,500 scholarship, as well as complimentary conference registration, is available to students at each of these education levels: Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Applicants must be graduate or undergraduate students performing research in urban entomology or industrial pest management full-time at a U.S. college or university. The application deadline is Feb. 14, 2022.
  • Distinguished Achievement Award: Nominees from academia, government, or industry who have made outstanding and significant contributions to the field of urban entomology will be accepted until Feb. 14, 2022. Selection of the award winner will be based on the total contributions of the nominee.

The event will take place at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel. A discounted group rate currently is available for attendees until April 22, but is subject to availability.

In 2024, the conference is scheduled for May 19-22 in Mobile, Ala.
