The congress welcomes all scientific works concerning damselflies and dragonflies (Odonata)


This is an opportunity to share scientific information in many aspects of odonate biology. Since the government restrictions for collecting animals are very strict, odonate collection will be limited to the mid- and post-congress tours. Governmental restrictions ask collectors to leave samples in Mexican collections or museums.



This event is dedicated to the memory of Philip S. Corbet, a great odonatologist, a close friend


For those people that are considering attending the congress, please email the organizers as soon as possible. Include those people that will be accompanying. This is to have an estimate number of possible attendants.
