Abstracts

Abstract submission deadline 13 April 2017.

To submit an abstract for this conference you will first need to register online as a conference participant  and then, once you have logged on, submit a contribution through the online conference system (https://www.conftool.net/parasitology2017/).

Please type your abstract text directly into the abstract text box, so that we can check the formating is correct. You can also upload a file (pdf or word document). The Organising Committee will be responsible for selection of the final form of presentation (either oral paper or poster). Some printed posters will also be selected for delivery as a brief 2 minute single Powerpoint screen oral presentation to encapsulate the essence, excitement, innovation and outcomes of your research. If you do not wish to give an oral presentation you may request to submit a poster display only. Delegates will be notified by the end of May 2017 about the type of presentation delivery for their contribution.

Your text of your abstract (excluding the title and relevant references) should be no longer than 200 words. Please place the name of the presenting author first. Abstracts that exceed the word limit will be truncated at the 200-word mark. Please follow the example below:
