The congress will have a session specifically dedicated to social insects named “SOCIAL INSECTS AND APIDOLOGY”, which will have three themes:
Social immunity – Keynote: Line Vej Ugelvig
Bees: management, ecosystem services, and products: Keynote: Christina M. Grozinger
Symbiosis in social insects – behavioural and ecological interactions: Keynote: Heike Feldhaar
Other sessions are also likely to be of interest to social insect biologists.
