MuseumPests.net goes live at Colonial Williamsburg!  After 10 years of creating online IPM resources for the museum, library/archive and historic site community we are partnering with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to hold a two-day conference and workshop program.  Papers will be presented in the mornings and hands-on workshops in the afternoons.  Come meet and connect faces to the colleagues whose digital signatures you’ve seen on the PestList. 

We are seeking papers and posters on Integrated Pest Management themes:

  • Preventive strategies and case studies
  • Control strategies and treatments
  • Innovative solutions and re-evaluation of existing treatments
  • Pesticide residues and health & safety
  • Training and awareness

Submit abstracts (400 words maximum) to Ryan Jones at rjones@cwf.org by August 12th, 2013.  Papers, posters or annotated PowerPoint presentations are due March 10, 2014 and will be posted as conference postprints on the MuseumPests.net website immediately following the conference.
