Conference proposals

If you are considering the possibility of hosting the conference in 2024, please note the following.

Representatives from the International Conferences on Ephemeroptera and the International Society of Plecopterologists established a set of guidelines for submitting proposals to host the joint conferences. These guidelines are:

Preliminary Proposals

Preliminary proposals to host a conference may be submitted six years prior to the year of the proposed conference, but final vote on the conference site will not be made until three years prior to the actual conference date.

Final proposals

1. Proposals should be submitted at least one month prior to the conference during which the proposal will be officially presented.

2. A copy of the proposal should be sent to the chair of each committee
- International Conferences on Ephemeroptera: Michel Sartori (michel.sartori@vd.ch)
- International Society of Plecopterologists: John Brittain (j.e.brittain@nhm.uio.no)

3. Proposals should be submitted by e-mail. This facilitates distribution of the proposal to the members of the two committees.

4. Proposals should contain detailed information regarding plans to host the conference.

Contact either chair for additional information.
