IPMnet is based at the Integrated Plant Protection Center of the Oregon State University, Corvallis, U.S.A. and is financially supported by USDA and USAID. IPMnet publishes the free IPMnet NEWS every 6 weeks, an independent, non-commercial electronic newsletter focusing on international aspects of IPM. IPMnet NEWS is distributed per email to about 5000 subscribers in more than 100 countries. Among the many news items of IPMnet NEWS, a special section, the IPMnet CALENDAR, deals with forthcoming pest management-related events (conferences, symposia, workshops, meetings, training courses, etc.) on a worldwide basis. A complete version of the IPMnet CALENDAR is distributed by email once a year, while each issue of the IPMnet NEWS lists the latest additions and revisions to the previous edition of the 'IPMnet CALENDAR, Latest Complete Version'. The current on-line version of the IPMnet CALENDAR is prepared in collaboration with ISPI in order to provide an easy reference to all forthcoming and past events, arranged by subject area, location and date.
