A major annual international meeting organised by the BSP, uniting all aspects of parasitology, spanning identification of new therapeutic modalities, genomics, disease mechanisms, control strategies, basic organismal biology, evolution and more.

Each session will feature an invited speaker, and all remaining oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. There will be ample scope for poster presentations, ad hoc workshops and roundtable discussions.
