The 6th International symposium on the biology and ecology of galling arthropods and related endophytes will be held at O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat from 4 - 8 August 2013.


The 6th International symposium on the biology and ecology of galling arthropods and related endophytes will be held in the heart of Lamington Plateau in southern Queensland, a World Heritage Area known for its natural beauty, rainforests, birdlife, ancient trees, waterfalls, walking tracks, mountain views and exceptional biodiversity.

The Symposium will provide a valuable forum and networking opportunities for researchers, systematists, evolutionary biologists and ecologists with interests in the biology, ecology, physiology taxonomy, and evolution of gall forming arthropods. For the first time the program has been expanded to include leaf mining arthropods, due to their close affinities to their galling counterparts.

The scientific program will comprise invited keynote speakers, oral presentations and poster sessions (refer to respective pages for regular postings). The social program includes a Welcoming Reception at O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat and a mid-conference excursion to explore the unique flora and fauna of Lamington National Park and tour the renowned Canungra Wine Estate.

Accommodation will be at O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat which offers a variety of options to suit all budgets (refer to Accommodation package).

The Organising Committee warmly welcomes you to the 6th International symposium on the biology and ecology of galling arthropods and related endophytes. Please register your interest in the link provided. We look forward to meeting you in Australia!
