Sorry, Ximo,

I have been very slow with various things, mainly as my first priority is cleaning up and getting ready to start a new phase in our lives.

Betty and I are now building a new home in Florida, etc. And, yes, Chris gets 800 square feet of "man cave" species. We will also have 3 extra bedrooms for visitors, so I hope you will come and visit in the future.

As for Potsdam, you know I will be there. But I am not sure whether I will make a "formal" presentation.

For this summer, yes, we are looking forward to your visit and I will have the stuff ready for Fragosa and Leucopodella, etc.

Subject: [Syrphidae] Inquiry - contribution to ICD8

Dear colleagues,

I’m organizing a small symposium on Syrphoidea (even though recent molecular analysis does not support Pipunculidae + Syrphidae) for the 8th International Congress of Dipterology, which will take place in Potsdam (Germany), from August 10th to 15th 2014.

I would like to know if you are interested on giving a talk on this matter to include you in the Syrphoidea symposium. The focus of the ICD is broad: taxonomy, systematics, phylogenetics, natural history, but also applied biology, conservation, and biogeography.

I think your contribution would be excellent for the Congress. Please, find all the details here: http://www.icd8.org/  and check “Important dates”. Please note that talks are 15 minutes including time for questions.

Please, answer this email if you are thinking on participating and let me know your “preliminary title”. It would be great to have you there.

Please distribute this email with your colleagues that may find it interesting.

Thank you!
