Dear members of the EAFE,
The annual EAFE meeting is now behind us.  I would like to express my gratitude towards Csaba Bozó, his authorities and his team for hosting us in Budapest during these few days. 
During the oral session, over 25 speakers from Europe and all over the world exposed their work, discoveries, analysis and hypothesis.  The poster session gathered about 40 posters. 
Such a meeting is naturally the opportunity to meet again, rejoice at old faces and discover new ones.  Some were missing, but I guess they will come to the future meetings.  By the way, the 2017 and 2018 EAFE meetings, to be held respectively in Italy and Germany are already well on their way.  I am grateful towards Stefano Vanin, Franck Reckel and Jan Grunwald for their commitment to our association.
2016 was an election year.  There were some changes in the board, as Katherine Brown and Poala Magni are now replaced by Amoret Whitaker and Cindy Aubernon, respectively board member, and student representative.  I thank them all for their past and future participation to the life of the EAFE. 
For my part, I am very honoured to be re-elected as president. 
With the board we identified some points on which we will work, in order to make the association more efficient.  You will read more about it in the following months. 

Hopefully it is going to stop raining and allow insects to lay eggs…  I wish all of you a very interesting entomological year. 
 Luc Bourguignon
