2014 Simuliidae Symposium Venue
Dear Colleagues,

This message is being sent to several mailing lists, if you receive more than one copy, please forgive me. Also please give a copy to any interested member who has not received this letter.

As you may know I have been asked by Aleksandra Cupinas and Rory Post to organise a ballot of simuliidologists to decide where we should hold the 2014 Symposium.

There are three candidates.

1. Torino, Italy;

2. Pavlodar, Kazakhstan;

3. Zaragoza, Spain.

Their full proposals can be examined at these URLs:

Italy - Kazakhstan - Spain

To help you decide I have created a summary table listing the main features and costs of each venue. It can be seen as a web page here: Comparison Table.

Complete the Ballot Form below, then copy and paste the text between the double lines into a new e-mail and send it to with Subject: "Symposium 201 4 Ballot" to arrive before the end of Wednesday 17 July.

John Davies

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
