NCES Annual Meeting and Banquet: October 24, 2017
The 2017 NC Entomological Society Annual Meeting & Banquet will be Tuesday, October 24! Plan for an evening of entomological fun and camaraderie at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh.
This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Adrian Smith, head of the Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and Assistant Research Professor at North Carolina State University. Dr. Smith’s research interest is in animal behavior and communication, specializing in social insect communication. His interest in communication does not stop there! Dr. Smith produces digital multimedia projects that focus on science and scientists communicating their research. In his series “Explained by the Author,” Dr. Smith works with scientists to create compelling short films that tell the story of their research. The ability to communicate your research across audiences is an invaluable skill. Dr. Adrian Smith will give a presentation on science communication, video, and entomology.
