BSP Conference: Parasites

21-25 June 2021
Online / virtual conference

For 2021, in place of their usual Spring Meeting, the British Society of Parasitology will hold an online meeting over five days during the Summer (21st-25th June). They 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.

The conference will run as a single stream. You can expect their usual mix of high quality themed scientific sessions, keynote speakers and presentations by postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers, including dedicated streams focusing on:

  • Schistosomiasis (curated by Prof Mike Doenhoff and Prof Tony Walker)
  • Ecology (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),

They will also hold interactive poster sessions, where delegates will have the opportunity for discussion with poster presenters.

Abstract submissions are now open - deadline 28 May 2021
