The 17th Eastern Spruce Budworm Research Work Conference (ESBRWC) was held at the Hilton in Quebec City on April 2nd and 3rd, 1997. The meeting was attended by almost 100 officially registered scientists conducting research on spruce budworm in the CFS and other institutions in Canada and the United States, as well as representatives of the forest industry and pesticide manufacturers. Its main objective was to provide an opportunity for spruce budworm researchers and control specialists to exchange the most up-to- date information on the insect's ecology and management. It came at a very opportune time because of new outbreaks in eastern Ontario and western Quebec, particularly along the Ottawa River valley, which lets us foresee the rise of a new generalized outbreak over much of northeastern North America in the near future.
