2006 International Congress of Dipterology
The 6th International Congress of Dipterology was held at the Fukuoka International Congress Center, Fukuoka, Japan, 23-28 September 2006. The "Program and Delegate List" and "Abstracts Volume" from the Congress are available for download below through the courtesy of the Organizing Committee of ICD6. These publications were not originally intended for electronic dissemination on this website.
The print version of the "Program and Delegate List" includes 42 numbered pages plus a cover page and an acknowledgements page. The PDF version offered here is the same as the print version for the first 28 pages (i.e., cover page, acknowledgements page, and pages 1-28), except that the pages are unnumbered. The Delegate List, comprising pages 29-42 in the print version, has been altered in the PDF version by the deletion of e-mail addresses. The Delegate List in the PDF version comprises pages 29-40.
The print and PDF versions of the "Abstracts Volume" are almost identical, and both have numbered pages. The print version has a cover page, three unnumbered pages, and 354 numbered pages. The PDF version is the same up to page 336. The Index of Authors and Index of Key Words, comprising pages 337-354 in the print version, occupies pages 337-355 in the PDF version. The Indexes may cause an error message when viewed, which can be cancelled without closing the document.
