Welcome to IWS3 in Perth!

Following on from the very successful IWS2 in Arusha, Tanzania we welcome you to IWS3 in Perth, Australia. 

The feedback from IWS2 showed that everyone liked the traditional structure of the meeting so we will also have the following sessions 1) Genomes 2) Systematics and Evolution 3) Biology, Ecology and Invasion Biology 4) Whitefly Endosymbionts 5) Whitefly Virus interactions 6) Whitefly Plant interactions 7) Management Control and IPM and we will add 8) PhD and MSc session.

One of the missions of IWS3 is to increase diversity and inclusion in the whitefly community.  We have a zero tolerance for harassment of any kind and a diversity and inclusion statements to help shape the current community and to lead us forward as a more inclusive and diverse community.  If we are going to help farmers control whiteflies globally it is going to take all of us!

The theme for IWS3 is “Putting Farmers First”- it is my hope that during this conference we keep that at the forefront of the work we do.  Share openly, be respectful, form new collaborations and enjoy beautiful Perth!

Warmest regards,
Laura Boykin
IWS3 Conference Chair
