Description

We'd like to invite the Australian Tephritid Fruit Fly community to gather at Macquarie University in Sydney for a workshop to discuss scientific advances on the Biology of this Fruit Fly family.

Topics include, but are not limited to, ecology, chemical ecology, physiology, genetics, genomics and molecular biology techniques, disinfestation, field management.

We are very glad to welcome Prof. Nikolas Papadopoulos who will give an opening talk.

The meeting is free and open for anyone to attend. Please register your interest to attend the event via Eventbrite by Monday 29 May. This is also an opportunity to present your research. If you would like to be considered, please submit a title and short abstract to fleur.ponton@mq.edu.au by COB Friday 2 June.


Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.

For those travelling to Sydney, accommodation options within walking distance include:


Please arrange your own accommodation. Pro tip: Hotels Combined is currently displaying the lowest prices and the hotels will usually match prices if you ring or email them.

There will be a post-conference gathering at the Macquarie U bar after the meeting (28 June). Details will follow once the number of attendees is confirmed.

Please forward this page to any researchers who might be interested in the meeting. We've been searching for the email addresses of people who may be interested but haven't found them all.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Kind regards,

Fleur Ponton, Marianne Peso and Shabnam Tahari Tabrizi on behalf of the organising team
