How the iobc/oilb montpellier 1996 conference developed, and was organized



The first incentive to envisage a worldwide Conference on the implementation of biological control was formally accepted by the global International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC; French and Spanish: OILB) in July 1992 during its General Assembly held in Bei-jing (China; cf. IOBC/OILB Newsletter55, April 1992; 56, August 1992). As a first step, a Conference Executive Committee (as listed below) was established under the auspices of IOBC/OILB, which has been responsible for defining the concept, and delineating broad scientific guidelines to be followed in the preparation of the event.
