The worldwide Covid pandemic has largely prevented face to face international and regional workshops. As the situation appears to be improving, we plan to provide information about future workshops relevant to plant protection.

The XI Argentinean and XII Latin American Congress of Entomology will be held in the city of La Plata, Argentina, between October 24 and 28, 2022. On this opportunity, the Latin American Federation of Entomology (FELA) will hold its Ordinary Assembly, in which the new authorities are to be elected and the venue for the next Congress shall be chosen.
