Message from the organizers

February 2022

Dear Parasitology Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 33rd Molecular Parasitology Meeting will be held from the 18 to 22 September 2022 in beautiful Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA.

Please SAVE the DATE!

Additional details will be available soon.

For now, we encourage you to help spread the word to lab members and colleagues, and we welcome you to join us to present and discuss the latest breakthroughs across all fields of molecular parasitology!

As in previous years, we plan to offer several travel awards for students and postdocs. Instruction on how to apply for financial assistance will soon be available at the MPM XXXIII website.

We look forward to seeing you all in September!

Best regards,

Bibo, Manuel, Maryse

David S. Roos

MPM XXXIII Keynote Speaker

This year's Keynote Speaker will be Dr. David S. Roos, E. Otis Kendall Professor of Biology in the Department of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania. David received his bachelors degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D. from The Rockefeller University. Before joining The University of Pennsylvania as a faculty member in the Biology Department he was a Helen Hay Whitney postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. Over the past three decades David made tremendous contributions to the field of parasitology with critical discoveries and innovations in the fields of molecular genetics, cell biology, genomics and more broadly "big data" accessibility. The pioneering development of online resources such as VEuPathDB.org, ClinEpiDB.org and MicrobiomeDB.org have been essential to the advancement of the field of parasitolgy specifically and have been held as exemplars of free universal data availability and reuse.

Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct covers the in-person, virtual (online) or hybrid Molecular Parasitology Meetings (MPM). MPM conferences may include keynote presentations, concurrent sessions, live poster Q&A, workshops, conference-related Slack channels, and Q&A via Zoom chat.


Updated July, 2021 (adapted from the Genetic Society of America policy)


MPM fosters an international community of parasitologists and provides opportunities for scientific discussion and collaboration. To make this experience productive and welcoming to all, and to foster open communication we ask you to adhere to MPMs code of conduct outlined below:

All conference participants (regardless of their role) are expected to follow the Code of Conduct while attending any portion of the conference, including but not limited to keynote presentations, concurrent sessions, live poster Q&A sessions, workshops, Zoom, email, social media and all conference Slack channels. This code of conduct applies to all modes of communication virtual or in-person.

  • Inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images (including presentation slides, posters, Slack channels, or Zoom chat)

  • Deliberate intimidation or stalking

  • Violating the rules and regulations of the online provider, Zoom

  • Sustained disruption of scientific sessions or other events

  • Unwelcome and uninvited attention or contact

  • Real or implied threat of physical harm

  • Real or implied threat of professional or financial damage or harm

  • Photographing or reproducing slides of oral presentations and posters without permission

  • Recording of scientific and other sessions without permission


Taking action or making a report

  • MPM organizers take any complaints seriously. If you need to report a Code of Conduct violation, please reach out to the meeting organizers.


Consequences of non-compliance

Anyone asked by MPM organizers, a Session Chair, Workshop Leader, Moderator, Presenter, or Zoom representative to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. Retaliation toward MPM or toward someone reporting an incident or after experiencing any of the following consequences will not be tolerated and may result in additional sanctions.

The consequences of non-compliance with MPM’s Code of Conduct may include:

  • Immediate removal from accessing the online meeting and Slack channels without warning

  • Restrictions from future MPM meeting attendance

  • Incidents may be reported to the proper authorities


Diversity and Inclusion

MPM is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion to create greater opportunity for any individual to fulfil their scientific potential, irrespective of their background, gender, or circumstances. This diversity leads to innovation by attracting the widest possible talent to the community and fostering a greater diversity of ideas, approaches, and perspectives. The Organizing Committee aims to select speakers and session chairs that represent the breadth and diversity of the discipline and conference participants.


Social Media/Photo/Video Policy

Live tweeting of presentations is allowed unless the speaker explicitly opts out by stating so at the start of their talk. Taking or sharing photos, videos, or reproductions of posters is not permitted unless you have the presenter’s consent.


Posters

When you view poster materials at the conference, remember that posters are typically works in progress. We expect poster attendees to treat virtual posters exactly as they would in-person posters and not to cite or reproduce any part of them without permission of the presenter.
