Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 4th International Conference on Malaria and Related Haemosporidian Parasites of Wildlife to present your most recent research results and ideas, and to share your knowledge in this field of science. The conference will take place in Beijing, China, from November 1-5, 2018, and will be hosted by the Beijing Normal University, Beijing Zoo and China Zoological Society.

During the past 10 years, much research has been done and remarkable discoveries have been made in various fields of research regarding wildlife malaria parasites (Plasmodium, Plasmodiidae) and related haemosporidians (Haemosporida), the agents of infections which affect all major groups of terrestrial vertebrates. The conference will promote international exchanges and enhance collaborations across the world for wildlife malaria research and the conservation and health of terrestrial vertebrates. Your participation would contribute to the success of this rare event in wildlife malariology and we invite you to join us.

Beijing, the capital of China, is an international metropolis combining both modern and traditional cultures. With its beautiful ancient Forbidden City, magnificent Great Wall and surrounding mountains, lakes and forests, Beijing is a gateway into a rich and historic past, and a modern Asian capital. The various activities around the conference, and the mild autumn setting, will make your journey an enjoyable and memorable experience.

The conference will include invited plenary lectures, oral presentations and posters. Information on the conference program, registration, student travel grants, and other details are now available on the website. The information about abstract submission, accommodation, social programs and travel will be available soon.

We look forward to seeing you in the golden autumn of Beijing.
