The 8th edition of International Conference on Wild Silkmoths (ICWS) will focus on the unexplored horizons of silkmoths.

It will include presentation of scientific papers, posters covering the entire range of wild silk production and its application in various fields.

An international exhibition on sericulture and silk industry will be organised parallel to the conference. It will give the visitors an opportunity to experience the varied type of sericulture practiced in India besides the ethnic silk products from different geographical regions of the country.
