In a Letter from the Editor in the latest issue of the Journal of Chemical Ecology, John Romeo, who has served as Editor-in-Chief for the journal over the past couple of decades, announced that he is stepping down and that Gary Felton of Penn State University will take over in this position beginning with the February issue of the Journal. Romeo stated, “Gary brings breadth, leadership, and experience to the Journal, as well as a commitment to keeping our standards high and continuing to raise our profile in the competitive publishing arena. I am pleased and confident that the Journal is in good hands.”
Penn State University's Center for Chemical Ecology is pleased to announce a two-week-long summer course in Insect Chemical Ecology called ICE 17
This center, which is coordinated by the University of Neuchâtel, aims to unite Swiss-based scientists in the field in order to push for excellence in research and teaching. It is motivated by similar initiatives by sister organizations in Jena, Alnarp, Brazil, Cornell and Penn State University, with which we hope to continue fruitful collaborations.
