The Autumn Symposium in 2021 will be held in the Life Sciences Building at University of Bristol (subject to travel restrictions, dates to be confirmed). The local organiser is Professor Wendy Gibson and the theme of the meeting is:
New approaches to investigating parasite-vector interactions
More information on this meeting will follow in due course.
For 2021, in place of our usual Spring Meeting, we will hold an online meeting over five days during the Summer (21st-25th June). We are planning an exciting programme of scientific content, which will be delivered through a virtual conference interface designed to maximise opportunities for interaction, through live Q&A sessions, breakout discussion rooms and virtual trade stands for our exhibitors and sponsors.
This year, we will run the conference with two streams. You will still see our usual mix of high quality themed scientific sessions, keynote speakers and presentations by postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers, including dedicated streams focusing on:
- Cell and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
- Drugs, Vaccines and Disease Control
- Interactions with Hosts and Vectors
- Diagnosis and Biomarkers
- Surveillance, Epidemiology, Stigma and Public Health
- Schistosomiasis (curated by Prof Mike Doenhoff and Prof Tony Walker)
- Ecology and Evolution (sponsored by the British Ecological Society)
- Epidemiological modelling (in association with the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory).
- Minorities in Science and Decolonising Parasitology: presenting content on the fight for gender and ethnic minority equality in parasitology, and the questionable history of parasitology during colonial times (curated by Dr James LaCourse, Dr Derrick Robinson and Dr Pegine Walrad),
We will also hold interactive poster sessions, where delegates will have the opportunity for discussion with poster presenters (although this year we’re sorry to say that you will have to bring your own refreshments).
Registration is now open.
Registration charges for the full 5-day meeting are as follows:
BSP members: £90
Delegates from low and middle income countries: FREE
