The 7th International Congress of Nematology (ICN) will be held in Antibes Juan-les-Pins (France) from the 3rd to the 8th of May 2020. The theme of the congress will be: “Crossing borders: a world of nematode diversity and impact to discover”, a timely subject as we reconcile the importance of agricultural production with that of environmental conservation.

Over the five days of the Congress, there will be an academic program that includes 12 plenary lectures and 32 parallel sessions covering a variety of topics including biodiversity, biology, ecology, genetics, epidemiology, management, biocontrol, regulatory/quarantine, phylogeny and taxonomy. Poster sessions will provide further opportunities for discussing results and ideas. 

During the congress, participants from all around the world will gather to learn and discuss about nematology under a broad spectrum of topics, trying to find solutions for agriculture as well as for nature conservation.

Recipients of the bursaries will either present a poster or give an oral presentation during the congress.
