Future of the nematodes studies 2022

Registration guideline

We here announce the “Future of the nematodes studies,” which aims to activate the Japanese nematode research field by providing young researchers opportunities to present and communicate, lacking in international conferences. All participants, from students to PIs, can interact frankly in the meeting.

Previous meetings were held at NIG (2018) and Nagoya University (2019), and both were very successful. 2020 could not be held due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but last year in 2021, the meeting was held online, and we had a lively discussion taking advantage of the ability to meet online.

4th meeting will be held online. The slogan is "Connecting Nematode Researchers: Let's Have a Frank Discussion." Besides the oral, poster, and reception sessions, we are planning lightning talk sessions by students and roundtable discussions and consultation sessions where students and researchers can casually discuss with each other. Let's have a heated debate beyond regional and national borders!
