What is the Council and ICE (International Congress of Entomology)

The Council for International Congresses of Entomology is made up of up to 23 eminent scientists drawn from national entomological societies and covering all geographic regions, but first and foremost, they represent the disciplines that make up Entomology: the study of insects and allied forms.  Councils’ prime function is to ensure the continuity of the International Congresses of Entomology or ICE as they have come to be known.  These large gatherings are open to entomologists from all countries and have come to be held every four years.  They celebrate the achievements and on-going challenges of this vital basic and applied science.
