10th International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) 2022 @ UPF - Campus de la Ciutadella
Jun 27 – Jun 29 all-day

The International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) brings together those with a professional interest in urban pests. Every three years, participants from academia, industry, government and professional pest control, come from all over the world to meet at the ICUP and share research and ideas. This year the institution that hosts the conference is the Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona (ASPB).

Sadly, the current situation has led us to postpone, once again, the celebration of the tenth edition of the ICUP until the summer of 2022. The health of the attendees has and will always be our main concern. Despite the adversities, we face this situation with enthusiasm and optimism. Urban Pest Control has shown its ability to adapt and overcome during this pandemic.
We are convinced that Barcelona will offer an unbeatable setting to get together, meet each other again and enjoy a unique Congress. Until then, we will continue our efforts to organize the best possible event. Of course, with the best possible health and safety measures.

In the 10th edition that we will celebrate in 2020+2, the Spanish Organizing Committee in charge of the Conference will maintain the classic main topics but introduce several new features related to ICUP’s spirit and aims. In the 10th ICUP Conference the organization initials will be relevant each day of the meeting.

ICUP: “I” day 27th June

“I” means “International” that in terms of Pest Management we can interpret as  “No borders” situation to fight against pests. Globalization is one of the most relevant drivers of new and old pest invasions worldwide. The massive and quick movement of people and goods all over the world has facilitated the expansion of arthropod, mammal and bird pests. Once established in urban environments they cause economic, health and structural damage. A global view of pest processes is needed since new harmful organisms can arrive to cities at any moment due to globalization and climate change. Consequently, networking of pest management professionals and awareness of pest situations are  mandatory preventive measures for any city. During the “I” day we will focus the Plenary Session  on this topic of “Globalization and Pest Management”.

ICUP: “U” day 28th June

“U” means “Urban”, which is our working landscape. The urban concept is strongly dynamic and has also notably changed in the last 100 years. Different types of urbanization processes and diverse urban plans can influence pest problems. Consequently, architects and other professionals directly involved in urban planning are key partners for pest managers. Moreover, urbanization has also a collateral impact on pest behavior. Cities are artificial environments that can cause changes in the ethology and reproduction of “urban fauna”. Understanding these factors and changes is crucial to design and implement efficient urban pest management programs, especially in relation to urban disease vectors such as mosquitoes, sandflies and rodents. All these aspects will be discussed in the Plenary Session of this day (the “U” day) of the Conference.

ICUP: “P” day 29th June

“P” means “Pests”, which is our key concept. Pest is a circumstantial, arbitrary and anthropocentric concept. The determination of  tolerance and economic impact thresholds to make decisions on pest management is not easy and varies depending on different cities and social, cultural and legal factors. Moreover, new pests or “urban fauna”  are emerging in different parts of the world. Some traditionally non-urban animals like parrots, wild boars, scorpions and snakes, are increasing their impact in cities worldwide. These topics will be discussed during the “P” day, of the Conference.

ICUP: “P” day 29th June

The last initial is “C” which correspond the “Conference”. The Conference is the space we have to discuss “I”, “U” and “P”. It is the forum for the exchange of technical and scientific ideas the enhancement of communication and cooperation among all those professionals working with urban pests worldwide.

The 13th Arab Conference of Plant Protection @ Le Royal Hotels & Resorts
Oct 16 – Oct 21 all-day

On behalf of the Arab Society for Plant Protection and the Organizing Committee of the 13th Arab Congress of Plant Protection, we invite you to participate in our coming congress to be held at the “Le Royal” Hotel, Hammamet, Tunisia, during the period October 16-21, 2022 with the general theme “Plant Health for a Secure and Safe Food”. Excellent scientific presentations by Arab and Foreign speakers will be the backbone of our congress, in addition to one day agricultural and touristic tour to visit historical and cultural sites in Tunisia.

During five days, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues during the symposia, concurrent oral and poster sessions or when visiting exhibition stands. In addition, social functions (welcome reception, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, lunch breaks and gala dinner) will be an appropriate occasion to interact informally with colleagues from different countries representing different institutions, public and private, who share common interests. Such interactions is a golden opportunity for initiating scientific exchange which can lead later to a formal or informal professional collaboration.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Tunisia in 2022.
