BSP PARASITES ONLINE 2021 For 2021, in place of our usual Spring Meeting, our main annual meeting will be held online over five days during the Summer (21st-25th June). We have 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.
All oral presentations will need to be pre-recorded and uploaded to the site, and then broadcast during the assigned slot. Presenters will be asked to be available for a live Q&A session at the end of their assigned slot. This approach should minimise any issues associated with poor internet connections, while maintaining an element of live face to face interaction. Presenters will have the option of making their content available on the conference website for a period of 1 year, but can opt out of this without issue. Full instructions and details on all of this will be provided after you submit an abstract.
The meeting will run across two streams. Our main science stream will incorporate our usual mix of varied high quality themed scientific sessions, keynote speakers and presentations by postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers. Our second, specialist stream, will include: (1) A series of talks from the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO; www.iddo.org); (2) Sessions focused on schistosomiasis, curated by Prof Mike Doenhoff and Prof Tony Walker; (3) A session on gender and racial equality in science, focusing on what we as parasitologists can do to address those issues.
There will also be 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).
