Early birds: February 28th

Students grants to cover Congress fees: March 21st

Abstract submission: May 4th

For the next IHS meeting scheduled for 4-8 July 2022 in Barcelona, we are very happy to inform you that we have several surprises prepared.

Physical presence

The congress is being planned as a dual face-to-face/online meeting. This will allow colleagues that cannot attend to still be able to present their work (both posters and oral presentations) and actively take part in the meeting. Unfortunately, we are unable to reduce the Congress costs due to the preparation of the online Congress also has associated costs, which need to be covered. Therefore, we encourage participants to attend face-to-face (allowing you to get to know in person the other colleagues, experience the sampling trip, and to tour Barcelona, the city is worth visiting!)

Student grants

We understand that the past couple of years have been tough for many young researchers, and we would like to help make their participation possible.

Therefore, we are happy to announce that, in addition to the travel grants already provided (Nils & Annemarie Møller Andersen Award), we will be able to cover the Congress fees for 15 students.

Students/Young researcher eligibility is for all undergraduate, and graduate (Bsc, Msc and PhD) students that are currently working on their degree, or those who have finished their studies within a year of the date of the Congress (July 2022).

For more details, contact the Organizing Committee.

STUDENTS: Do not forget to ask for your participation in the Kerzhner Award competition if you are submitting any oral or posters presentation. Winners of each are awarded a $200 prize!

For more information on the Kerzhner Award, please contact.

Workshop on Pentatomoidea

At the last IHS meeting in La Plata, a workshop on the Reduvoidea was organized, in order to assess current problems and the classification in that group.  The Workgroups had a great reception by those who participated, consequently, for this IHS meeting we are planning to develop a Workshop on the Pentatomoidea.

So, we want to encourage our colleagues who are working on the Pentatomoidea, and anyone else that is interested in participating, to attend the Congress, so we can get together to discuss in an open forum the current status of this group, which groups of particular interest are in need of special attention, possible collaborations, and a possible new classification based on recently published data.

Link to the website for early bird registration is available.


We would also like to say in advance that we are trying to provide the safest covid-free environment and are considering the possibility of a dual in-person/partially online meeting.


We look forward to seeing you here in Barcelona.


For additional information, please contact the Organizing Committee. If you have any questions, do not hesitate dropping us a line!
