As part of the 21st International C.elegans conference, we would like to solicit contributions to the workshop on parasitic nematodes.
We are pleased to invite student and postdoc abstract submissions for 5 minute lightning talks to be presented at the NSF-sponsored, 3rd 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 a unique opportunity for early-career scientists to interact with other researchers at the intersection of C. elegans biology and parasitology. These five minute talks will be presented on the first day of the 21st 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 12th at 5pm PST and presenting authors will be notified of decisions by May 19th. Instructions for logistics and formatting of lightning 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) as a single PDF file with subject heading “Lightning Talk Abstract”. A notification of receipt will follow submission. Accepted abstracts will appear online in a Worm Breeder’s Gazette article and titles will be listed on the International Worm Meeting website.
