14th Mosquito Control Association of Australia and 13th Arbovirus Research in Australia Online Symposium

The 14th Mosquito Control Association of Australia (MCAA) / 13th Arbovirus Research in Australia (ARA) Symposium will now become a completely online symposium to be held from Monday, 30 August, through Wednesday, 1 September 2021. 

The theme of the symposium remains “Taking local ideas to the world”. The program will showcase some of the innovative and strategic responses to mosquito threats locally and their implications for managing global vector-borne disease threats. Issues covered will range from local government and their work “on the ground” to world class research in Australian institutions.

The symposium is designed to promote collaboration and partnerships to improve preparedness, prevention, and the control of vector-borne diseases of medical importance. It will also allow delegates access to the latest developments on existing and emerging mosquito management technologies, methodologies and management options.

The symposium will include outstanding Australian and international speakers, plenary presentations. Even with an online forum, we are hoping to bring delegates a range of networking opportunities as well as student activities. 

Important dates:

  1. Abstract Submission Deadline - March 31, 2021
  2. Early & Author Registration Deadline - July 9, 2021
