The president and the Board together with the head of the organising committee, Hans Jerrentrup, cordially invite you to attend our Xth International Conference of EMCA to be held in Vienna, Austria, from 3rd to 8th October, 2021.
“NEW INSIGHTS INTO MOSQUITO AND BLACKFLY CONTROL”
The EMCA leaders did start planning the EMCA International Conference despite the Covid-19 pandemic context which makes such event planning hypothetic. However we are confident that by the end of the summer the lockdowns and travel restrictions will be lifted. But travelers might have to be in possession of a vaccination pass or a negative Sars-Cov-19 virus test. But it would be pleasant to meet each other again face-to-face. The beautiful city of Vienna, situated in the middle of Europe, would offer an excellent start to resume our meetings.
1. General information
The participants will arrive on Sunday, 3rd October, and enjoy an evening welcome party. The conference will start officially on Monday 4th October morning and last through Thursday afternoon 7th October.
Vienna is reached conveniently by air, train and car.

There will be room for eight sessions. Some will be introduced by keynotes. We kindly ask our members to propose topics for consideration by the scientific committee, which will be headed by Francis Schaffner.
7. Excursions and conference dinner
Hans Jerrentrup will introduce us on Wednesday to the March/Morava flood plains and his mosquito control projects. The excursion is followed by a "Heurigen-Dinner" at Schlosshof.
A visit is planned on Thursday afternoon to the site of International Atomic Energy Agency in Seibersdorf. The number of participants is limited due to security reasons to 60 persons.
We will not organise site seeing tours within Vienna. The city has so many beautiful and interesting sites, so that we would like to leave it to individual decisions.
