Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria (Virtual Conference)

Wellcome Genome Campus – Virtual Conference

07 – 09 June 2021

Abstract deadline 12 April | Registration deadline 31 May

We are pleased to announce the 8th Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria conference. This multidisciplinary meeting provides a forum for malaria scientists and clinicians focused on understanding the clinical and biological consequences of genome variation in malaria-exposed populations. The conference will bring researchers from across the globe working on various aspects of human, parasite and mosquito genetics together to focus on how new biological insights can be used to control malaria.

This year’s conference will focus on our current understanding of transmission models and migration patterns, genomic surveillance and the implications for policies to eradicate malaria. We will also explore resistance to malaria drugs and insecticides, and provide a forum to discuss biological insights from recent advances in malaria genetics.

The First Women in Malaria Conference

Virtual Meeting on 22-24 March 2021

The Women in Malaria (WiM) community joins more than 420 researchers from 34 countries from all continents. The goal of this conference is to highlight the outstanding contributions of female scientists in the field, provide equal opportunities of participation to WiM from the early stages of the scientific career, and guarantee the inclusiveness in the selection with a balanced participation of scientists from various countries. Specifically, each session will feature 2 keynotes, including both earlier career and a more established speaker.

Registration for the conference will be open from February 1st until March 20th
The full registration fee is 50 Euros.
This registration includes attendance to all live scientific symposia over 22 – 24 March (we’re hoping symposia will also be recorded and made available to attendants). The leadership and peer-mentoring workshops will be restricted to female scientists.

Registration waivers are available for attendees from low- and middle-income countries as well as students with limited funding (contact us for information on how to apply).

29th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Parasitology

15-17 March 2021 (online)

The ongoing epidemiologic situation with Covid-19 continues to challenge each and one of us in our everyday life as well as in our work. Now more than ever we see the need for scientific exchange, which is why we do not wish to postpone our exciting and important meeting again. To allow all of us certainty in planning (in the light of possibly new travel restrictions, venue hygiene requirements, rules for social distancing, etc.), the DGP board and the organisers have decided to hold the DGP 2021 digitally.

The date is as communicated before, i.e. 15-17 March 2021. The programme structure will be slightly adapted to fit the digital format. In particular, we will reserve sufficient time for poster sessions, where poster presenters will have the opportunity to hold short pitches followed by questions from the auditory. Posters will be on display throughout the meeting so that interested colleagues may visit them digitally before the sessions and prepare their questions.

To guarantee the success of the virtual DGP congress, we kindly ask you to submit your latest scientific findings. Therefore, we have extended the abstract deadline until 30 November 2020. One lesson from the Covid-19 pandemic is that the topic of “One Health” should receive more attention. Therefore, we have added One Health as an extra abstract topic, along with the extra topic “clinical veterinary parasitology” to strengthen the veterinarian aspect of our meeting.
Find all the main topics online and submit your abstract here:

> main topics and abstract submission

You will receive detailed information about all further steps towards the digital congress in the coming weeks via our event homepage.


Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our organising agency Conventus (Robert Deubler | phone: +49 3641 31 16-322 | e-mail:

We are looking forward to numerous submissions as well as your participation at reduced rate in this very special congress format! We encourage you to disseminate this call for abstracts also to your collaborators from foreign/endemic countries (special rates apply).

With best regards
Prof. Dr. Achim Hörauf & Team
P.S.: Share it! Inform your colleagues about the digital 29th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Parasitology 2021!
