The XVI International Congress of Acarology (Auckland, New Zealand) is only five weeks away. The Local Organizing Committee has been busy processing the abstracts and full papers submitted to the proceedings and preparing the programme. Some colleagues are still preparing abstracts and the Local Organizing Committee has decided to extend the deadline for abstract submission to 31 October 2022.
This congress welcomes virtual participation in additional to physical attendance in person. Those who submitted abstracts before the deadline and registered for the online option will be able to present a talk online. The full registration fee for virtual participation is NZ$300 and student registration fee for virtual participation is only NZ$150.
I look forwarding to welcoming you in Auckland!
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee
Prof Zhi-Qiang Zhang
President, XVI International Congress of Acarology 2022
