4th Parasitic Nematodes: Bridging the Divide workshop

As part of the 22nd International C.elegans conference being held at UCLA from June 20th-24th-, we would like to solicit contributions to the workshop on parasitic nematodes.

We are pleased to invite student and postdoc abstract submissions for 10 minute talks to be presented at the 4th Parasitic Nematodes: Bridging the Divide workshop. We encourage submissions that address the broad theme of C. elegans as a model for parasitic nematode biology, including work relating to human, animal, and plant parasitic nematodes and from both a basic biology standpoint or a translational perspective. The platform provided by this workshop represents an opportunity for early-career scientists to interact with other researchers at the intersection of C. elegans biology and parasitology. These ten minute talks will be presented on the first day of the 22nd International C. elegans Meeting. The presenting authors must be available during any of the limited number of possible time slots available. Abstract submissions are due on May 13th at 5pm PST and presenting authors will be notified of decisions by May 20th. Instructions for logistics and formatting of talk presentations will follow acceptance.

Abstract Format: Abstracts should be limited to 2,500 characters in total, including the title, authors, author affiliations, main body, and spaces. Abstracts should be sent to the workshop e-mail address (parasiteworkshop.2019@gmail.com) as a single PDF file with subject heading “Parasite Workshop Abstract”. Accepted abstracts will appear online in a Worm Breeder’s Gazette article and titles will be listed on the International Worm Meeting website.
