From the event organisers:

Building on the ICUP conferences that stretch right back to 1993, we are now delighted to announce the dates and initial details for the 10th International Conference on Urban Pests.

Once again, we are holding the conference in Europe, from 29 June –1 July 2020, at the prestigious Pompeu Fabra University, in Barcelona, Spain.

Since the close of the previous ICUP in Birmingham, our 2020 Organising Committee has been working hard on laying the foundations for what promises to be another stimulating and productive event.

We will be making further information on ICUP 2020 available shortly, including the call for papers and delegate registration, as soon as our conference website goes live.
