An interdisciplinary, international congress, bringing together researchers who study phytophagous piercing/sucking insects, their complex interactions with their host plants, environment and pathogen transmission.


The HPIS is an interdisciplinary, international congress, bringing together researchers who study phytophagous piercing/sucking insects, their complex interactions with their host plants, environment and pathogen transmission. 

The congress will bring together entomologists with expertise on phytophagous hemipteran insects (Orders Hemiptera and Thysanoptera) and their endosymbionts, plant biologists and physiologists with expertise on plant defences and responses to hemipteran feeding, and plant pathologists with expertise on transmission of plant pathogens by hemipterans. It will facilitate an exchange of ideas and foster collaborations across disciplines, countries to strengthen our understanding of hemipteran biology, ecology, spread and economic importance.
