Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The book "An Important and Victorious Science: The International Congress of Entomology" provides an account of the history of the International Congress of Entomology. The first Congress was in 1910 and the most recent Congress was in 2016. This chapter focuses of the impacts of the 25th International Congress of Entomology (ICE 2016) that was held in Orlando, Florida. ICE 2016 was the largest gathering of entomologists (6,671 participants from 101 countries) and the largest number of presented papers (5,396) at a single Entomology event in history. Essentially, every subject concerning Entomology was discussed at this event under the meeting theme "Entomology without Borders." Written comments from delegates from different regions around the world after three years post ICE 2016, along with the other information identified in this book chapter, indicate that ICE 2016 had many positive impacts on the global scientific community.
