The 2017 BSP Autumn Symposium will be held on Thursday 28th September at the Linnean Society, Burlington House, London. One month is left to submit an abstract for this meeting: the deadline is Aug 14th 2017.
The symposium is entitled “The multidisciplinarity of parasitology: host-parasite evolution and control in an ever changing world”. It will aim to explore and broadly discuss recent progress towards understanding host-parasite relationships, with a particular emphasis on vectors and intermediate hosts of human diseases. The meeting will also be a convenient opportunity to develop a festschrift in Parasitology in honour of Prof David Rollinson (a former President of the BSP), marking over forty years of parasitological research.
There will be an open poster session, with each poster having a 1-min speed talk to encourage later discussions during the lunchtime and evening drinks receptions in the magnificent library of the Linnean Society. After the evening reception, to take discussions further there will be a speakers’ dinner, open to all by ticket, at the Kings Head, Mayfair.
