The Insect Parasitoid Special Interest Group aims to promote and disseminate research on insect parasitoids. The group membership is especially active in the study of behaviour, development, ecology, evolution, and taxonomy, although we are keen to promote other scientific fields. The group works informally to promote interaction and contacts via an e-mail list, updated annually. It also meets formally for a day long annual workshop, usually in the spring, where new research is presented though talks and posters. The meeting often includes a longer presentation by an invited speaker and a small prize competition for the best oral presentation by a student. The meeting is attended by 40-50 people, mostly from the UK and neighbouring European countries.

Convenor: James Kitson, Newcastle University,
