Following notification that Cedric Gillott intends to resign as Bulletin Editor at the end of 2021, the Entomological Society of Canada is seeking his replacement. The Bulletin Editor is an officer of the Society and reports to the Society’s Board of Directors.
The principal duties of the Bulletin Editor are twofold: 1) To seek and assemble content for each of the four issues published annually; and 2) To conduct technical editing and ensure submitted material follows the Bulletin Guidelines for Authors. Note that development of the layout for each issue (using Adobe InDesign software) is the responsibility of the Bulletin Assistant Editor, currently Donna Giberson. The content of the Bulletin falls broadly into two categories, regular features (e.g., Up front, STEP corner, Society business reports, and Last word) and irregular (occasional) features (e.g., announcements of awards, book reviews, In memory tributes, and research reports). For more information on the position, please contact Cedric Gillott (firstname.lastname@example.org; phone (res) (306-374-8907).
Please express your interest in the position to the President, Bill Riel (ESCPresident@esc-sec.ca). The final selection will be made by an ad hoc committee convened by the President.
The 17th Annual Photo Contest to select images for the 2022 covers of The Canadian Entomologist and the Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada is underway. The cover images are intended to represent the breadth of entomology cove red by the Society’s publications. Insects and non-insects in forestry, urban or agriculture; landscapes, field, laboratory or close-ups; or activities associated with physiology, behaviour, taxonomy or IPM are all desirable. A couple of ‘Featured Insects’ are also needed. If selected, your photo will grace the cover of both publications for the entire year. In addition, winning photos and a selection of all submitted photos will be shown on the ESC website.
The American Arachnological Society is hosting a Virtual Conference Thursday June 24 – Thursday July 1. A Keynote address by Maydianne Andrade will open the meeting on the evening of the 24th. Program highlights include plenary talks by Mercedes Burns, Lauren Esposito, and Ivan Magalhães; oral and poster presentations; and a panel discussion and workshop on actions to dismantle racism and promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in arachnology.
Abstract submission is now closed, but registration (only 20 USD) for the meeting and the associated events remains open until Monday June 14. Don’t miss this chance to participate in workshops on arachnid photography, collecting, and more, two movie nights (featuring Maratus and Sixteen Legs), a photography and art contest, and a virtual arachnid bioblitz!
Freely accessible events include a public talk about arachnids by Jillian Cowles, author of Amazing Arachnids (this talk will be livestreamed on youtube on Sunday June) and an Arachnid Q&A livestream with Isa Betancourt, host of The Bugscope.
