The workshop will focus on all issues related to the rearing of entomophagous and phytophagous insects & mites, and to principles and practices of quality control. The programme will consist of invited papers presenting an overview of selected topics (to be announced later) and contributed presentations on the different aspects of arthropod rearing as it relates to quality control. Papers will serve as a basis for discussion and exchange, with the final aim of improving collaboration among scientists and practitioners (e.g., biocontrol companies).
