10th International Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Symposium

10th International Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Symposium

The 10th International Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Symposium will be Feb. 28 to March 3 in Denver, Colo.

Registration for the event is now open, and the early bird registration ends on Feb. 4.

The event will be held in-person. The schedule at a glance and concurrent session schedule have been updated, but more details will be added as they are confirmed.

A full list of events during the symposium is available on the website.

The Professional Development Workshop was just added to the schedule for March 3, titled “Understanding spatial data collection and use.” The cost is $45 per person, and attendees can register by Feb. 4.

“There are many tools for collecting, managing, and visualizing spatial data,” notes a news release from the organization. “While we all benefit from these tools, many biologists don’t understand how they work behind the scenes, how they are maintained, or how seemingly simple changes may have unforeseen consequences. This gap can make adopting these tools feel like a barrier to entry when planning for new projects, choosing between existing tools, and sharing data between programs.”

This workshop invites participants to be more conversant in the basic terminology used in the design and operation of these systems to foster mindful collaboration.

Specifically, in this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of:

  • Basic concepts of data, databases, websites, and apps
  • Spatial data basics
  • How to talk to programmers and other nerds
  • Data collection tools and collection strategies
    • Setup for success – Metadata and thinking through data collection
      • Citizen science vs. expert
      • Local level vs. landscape scale
      • Data privacy and ownership
  • Basic visualization tools
  • Analysis and advanced visualization tools
