Share your findings with others so that myrmecology in Asia will be developed by incorporating their valuable suggestions and comments. Also, all postgraduate students in the field of myrmecology should attend and present papers at this ANeT Conference because  future developments of ant science is in your hands!

Message from Dr. Himender Bharti (President of ANeT)

On behalf of ANeT committee, I invite you to the 10th International Conference on Ants (ANeT- 2015) to be held at University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka from 23rd October to 26th October, 2015. The theme of the meeting is “Diversity, Importance and Conservation of Ant Communities in Asia”. The theme of present meeting is very relevant in terms of ongoing ecosystem degradation, habitat loss, climate change etc. I sincerely hope that the present conference would benefit the participants a lot and the outcome would provide an insightful direction to researchers. Since the inception of ANeT, the science of myrmecology has progressed a lot in Asia. Kudos to the efforts of members of ANeT. The journal of ANeT “Asian Myrmecology” has come up as an outstanding journal with scientific contributions of good academic standard. Finally, I congratulate Prof. R. K. Sriyani Dias and her team, who has taken the initiative to organize the conference in Sri Lanka and I hope it would be a wonderful meeting.
