The meeting will focus on how entomologists communicate with the public and how the public connects with entomology in return. The meeting will provide a forum that is dedicated to the examination of the public perception and understanding of entomology. There will be speakers from an array of backgrounds talking about how to improve the communication of insect science. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the role of citizen scientists, teachers and journalists, and how key concepts in entomology can be tailored for different audiences to achieve the greatest impact.
