Pesticide Chemistry
10–14 August 2014, San Francisco, California, USA

The 13th IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry will be held in San Francisco, 10–14 August 2014. Hosted by the Agrochemicals Division of the American Chemical Society, the congress is being organized by co-chairs Laura McConnell of the USDA Agriculture Research Service and Ken Racke of Dow AgroSciences.

The program will encompass both traditional chemical pesticides and biotechnology-based crop protection approaches. Furthermore, the theme “Crop, Environment, and Public Health Protection: Technologies for a Changing World” recognizes a need for greater emphasis on public health protection. A focus on technology will widen the umbrella for a host of activities that are interdisciplinary. One of the objectives in choosing the Congress theme is to attract attendees interested in non-traditional “pesticides” including disinfectants and veterinary drugs, emerging environmental contaminant issues (such as consumer products and drugs in water), and technologies for application of products and implementation of nonchemical pest management strategies.

A report on the 2010 meeting has been published in Outlooks on Pest Management, Dec. 2010, p. 288 <http://dx.doi.org/10.1564/21dec10> and <www.iupac.org/web/act/Melbourne_2010-07-04>.
