Oides bowringii with beautiful blue elytra is a rare insect found only in Kyoto and Hyogo Prefectures in Japan. Due to parthenogenesis, males have not been found in Japan.

Kadsura japonica is the staple food of Oides bowringii.  It has been loved by the Japanese since ancient times and has been written in waka poems.
“Meeting again” and “opportunities” are the flower language of Kadsura japonica.

According to data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, women account for less than 30% of researchers worldwide. Moreover, the proportion of female researchers in East Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea is notably low on a global scale. In order to reexamine the issues related to gender imbalance in academia, this session aims to shed light on the challenges. It will also introduce initiatives in East Asia and share the perspectives of young researchers from around the world. Through a panel discussion, the goal is to enhance the visibility of female researchers in the International Entomological Congress and encourage the development of a more balanced and inclusive academic landscape in the future.
