This year is going to be a jam-packed week long session of intense teaching, field, and lab sessions about all aspects of termite biology, with a special focus on the ecology, evolution and symbiosis of termites.

This course is open to ALL (students, post docs, and faculties!) from all fields of study in social insects. We would love to share our love and experience of termites to our friends studying other social insect models.

This year is going to be very special as we will have guest speakers who will provide there unique perspective on various aspects of Termite Biology, which means we will have a total of 10 instructors, including:

Rudi Scheffrahn
Nan-Yao Su
Kenji Matsuura

William Kern
Tiago Carijo
Thomas Chouvenc

In addition, Graduate students who participate to this termite course will be given the opportunity to present their own work in a grad student mini-symposium organized during the event

The class is capped at 50 participants, and the registration is on a first come first serve basis.

Finally, this course will be offered again only in 2021, so please make sure to not miss this opportunity if you are interested in joining us.

If any questions, please let me know.
