First Circular on

XII International Symposium on Scale Insect Studies

2010  Crete, Greece



XII International Symposium on Scale Insect Studies - ISSIS

Crete (Hellas) 06-09 April 2010


First Announcement


Dear Colleague

On behalf of the International Committee of the International Symposium on Scale Insect Studies - ISSIS, we cordially invite you to participate in the XII ISSIS meeting, to be held in Chania, Crete, on April 06-09th, 2010.

The meeting is being locally organized by the Institute of Veterinary Research of Athens (NAGREF) in collaboration with Benaki Phytopathological Institute, and will take place at Mediterranean Agronomical Institute in Chania. It will cover all aspects of scale insect studies, including systematics and morphology, genetics and evolution, zoogeography and faunistics, biology and population dynamics, natural enemies, monitoring and pest management. It is also intended to be an opportunity to bring together people dealing with coccids and to discuss the most recent research achievements in scale insect studies.

Crete is the southern island of Greece. It is of major historical interest and is a popular tourist destination. Its attractions include the Minoan sites of Knossos and Phaistos, the classical site of Gortys, the Venetian castle at Rethymno, and the Samaria Gorge, as well as many other natural sites, monuments, and beaches. Crete was the centre of the Minoan civilization (ca. 2600-1400 BC), the oldest form of Greek and hence European civilization

Chania is the second largest city of Crete and the capital of the Chania Prefecture. It lies along the north coast of the island, about 70 km west of Rethymno and 145 km west of Heraklion. The city has two entrances: the airport of Akrotiri, and the port of Souda (the largest in the Mediterranean).

Chania International Airport (IATA code: CHQ) has several flights a day from Athens and Thessaloniki, and from April to early November, there are many direct charter flights from the UK, Germany, Scandinavia and other European countries. The city's port of Souda lies 7 km to the east and connects Chania with daily ferries to Piraeus (Athens)

Every spring the prefecture of Chania is covered with a feast of colours from the plethora of blossoming trees, bushes and flowers, while intoxicating aromas from the herbs and citrus infuse the air. The countryside is also rich in animal life off all sorts including several bird species which are rare elsewhere in Europe.

During the meeting, a field trip is planned to see some of the most interesting sights. The exact locations have yet to be finalised but could include some of the following: Chora Sfakion, Annopolis, one of the most traditional and authentic areas on Crete, the gorge of Aradaina, which starts at the southern slopes of the White Mountains, the Byzantine monastery of Ag. Roumeli the ancient city Tara, already a timber exporter 4000 years ago. or the Samaria gorge, one of Europe's longest gorges, where many rare plants and birds can be found (including the margarodid Marchalina hellenica) hosting a plethora of rare flora (eronda" or Cretan dittany (Origanum dictamnus)) and fauna species, such as Kri-Kri (Carpa aegagrus- cretica), or the rare bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus) and the vulture (Gyps fulvus)  

The Organization Committee is also considering the possibility of organizing a post-meeting excursion (Apri10-11th) if enough people are interested. The trip will include visits to some places of great historical and ecological interest, such as Knossos, the largest Minoan Palace built around 2000 B.C of ashlar blocks, with many floors and decorated with really beautiful frescoes, the Palace of Phaistos which is located at the end of the Mesara plain in south central Crete and is considered one of the finest of all Minoan palaces, or the forest of Vai, placed on the eastern side of Crete. This forest is unique with more than 5,000 Phoenix Theophrastii palm trees and, is the only palm tree forest in Europe.

If you intend to participate in the XII ISSIS, please fill in registration form and send it to the local organizers, preferably by e-mail (), before October 20th , 2009.

Updated information will be available on this web site.

Looking forward to meeting you in Chania
