As part of the 24th International C. elegans conference being held in Glasgow, Scotland June 24th-28th 2023, we would like to solicit contributions to the workshop on parasitic nematodes.
We are pleased to invite student and postdoc abstract submissions for 12-minute talks to be presented at the 6th Parasitic Nematodes: Bridging the Divide workshop. We encourage submissions from researchers working on human-, animal-, and plant-parasitic nematodes, as well as those using C. elegans as a model for parasitic nematode biology. 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 12-minute talks will be presented on the first day of the 24th International C. elegans Meeting. The presenting authors must be available during any of the limited number of possible time slots. Abstract submissions are due on April 3rd at 5pm PST and presenting authors will be notified of decisions by April 24th. 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.2023 at gmail dot com) as a single PDF file with subject heading “Parasite Workshop Abstract.”
