2015 Linnaean Games

The first Australian Entomological Society (AES) Linnaean Games will occur in conjunction with the AES Conference 2015. The game is an adaptation of the Entomological Society of America Linnaean Games, which is a lively question-and-answer competition on entomological facts played between university-sponsored student teams. Unlike the American version, competitors at the AES Linnaean Games are represented as individuals (i.e. no teams), such that five winners (a champion and four runners-up) will be awarded. These five winners will subsequently be invited* to form a team to represent Australia and receive sponsorship* from AES for the Linnaean Games at the upcoming 2016 XXV International Congress of Entomology (ICE2016), to be held 25-30 September 2015, in Orlando, Florida, USA.

The AES Linnaean Games 2015 is organised by the AES Board Director for Student Relations. Please direct any queries, concerns and suggestions to Gurion Ang at 07 3365 2196 or gurion.ang@gmail.com.
